5-year-old Easton Blocker sees Officer Jeffery Cross as a hero and a best friend.

"From day one, he has always had a fascination with Officer Cross," Easton's mother Lauryn told WXIA.

So, on "Dress as your favorite person day", Easton knew exactly who he wanted to look like. Lauryn made Easton his own shirt which read "junior security" so he could emulate his hero.

"That shirt is probably going to stick with him forever. It means a lot to him," Lauryn said.

Seeing Easton all dressed up meant a lot to Officer Cross, too.

"It makes me appreciate my job more," Officer Cross said.

This is the first year of having armed security officers in the school district.

"They had questions about why I was armed and I was just telling them, 'I'm armed to protect them from someone bad who would come and hurt them,'" Officer Cross said.

That has since stuck with Easton.

"He tells me every day; Officer Cross keeps us safe from the bad guys, mommy," Lauryn said. "It's reassuring."
