Watch: Fallen Police Officer’s Son Gets a First Day of School Surprise

When Officer Justin Scherlen of the Amarillo Police Department died two weeks ago from complications from an on-duty vehicle crash, he left behind his wife, Jessica, and their kids, Fox 8 reported.


For the first time, the children’s father would not be there for them on their first day of school, so Scherlen’s department planned a very special tribute to him.Dozens of cops—“an army of stand-ins”, as the school called them— came over to the Scherlens’ home and escorted the heartbroken kids to school.

When they arrived at school, Scherlen’s four-year-old son, Jackson, walked over and hugged every single officer:

Justin “would be very proud of how his brothers and sisters have stepped up to be here for his kids,” Jessica Scherlen said.
