A son in Washington state has fulfilled a decades-old Father’s Day prophecy to his dad: that he would one day serve alongside him as a police officer.
In 1998, Auburn Police Officer Gould’s son wrote a note in a Father’s day card bearing a photo of them sitting together in his squad car.
“When I get bigger, I’m going to be my Dad’s partner and catch bad guys and burglars,” his son wrote.
Twenty years later, the Auburn Police Department posted a 2018 photo, proof that the son’s promise had come to fruition.
“At 6’7”, it was a hard squeeze to fit Officer Gould’s son in his patrol vehicle on Father’s day this year, but they did it!” Auburn PD wrote on their Facebook page. “As you can see, his son did follow his dad into law enforcement just as predicted in this Father’s Day card in 1998.”
The Goulds were all smiles as the younger officer leaned forward into the dash, obviously cramped as he posed in the passenger seat. His father, looking no worse for the wear, considering a career of 20+ years, beamed with pride.
Gould’s son is a member of the King County Sheriff’s Office, who happily shared the post, referring to it as “awesome.”
