Ed "Butch" Larkin is known as the "dancing cop."

The 79-year-old started working at the intersection of Scotland Road and South Orange Avenue in South Orange at age 23.

"I do all kind of moves; left, right around the back, I do everything," Larkin told ABC 7. "I give 110% when I go out there."

"Everyone recognizes him when they come to town," says Lt. Moore, "and I think people look forward to it."

Larkin promises to continue dancing until he can't give 110%.

"Then I'll have to retire," Larkin said.

Hopefully that is no time soon.
