LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) - The Metro Police Department helped a young man's biggest dream come true this Christmas.

Earlier this year, Dylan Jackson wrote an essay about wanting to be a police officer. On December 21, he got the full LMPD treatment.

Dylan got to meet Police Chief Conrad, hang out with several officers and even made a visit to the equine unit.
