From the yellow shirts to the black pants, the two were quite a pair. Cross’ shirt had the word “SECURITY” spelled across the back, while Easton’s read “JUNIOR SECURITY.”

According to THV11/KTHV, the 5-year-old chose to dress up like Cross because “he keeps me safe,” Easton said.

How awesome is this? 💛🖤 Officer Cross and BGLE student Easton are being featured tonight at 10 pm on KTHV Channel 11 News. #JNPTitans #BuildingFutures
