BOYNTON BEACH, Fla. — Several special needs students had their dreams come true thanks to a group of Florida officers.

On Saturday, several Boynton Beach Police Department officers attended the John I. Leonard High School’s prom as the dates of several special needs students, WPTV reported. Scott Harris, a retired officer for the department, said the department came up with the idea so the students could have the same fun as their peers.

“We came up with this idea of having these students come to the prom since they wouldn’t have the opportunity if we didn’t take the chance and bring them here. My wife is a teacher at John I. Leonard and teaches these students,” Harris said.

The officers also prepared boutonnieres and corsages for the students, according to KCRG. The department documented the event on social media throughout the night, showcasing officers dancing along with the students.

“It’s amazing to see these young kids that don’t have the opportunity to be here today,” Harris said. “They are awesome kids and now they are mingling with the other kids, doing the same thing that kids that don’t have disabilities are doing.”
