So it’s not exactly "Ghostbusters," but it’s pretty darn close!
Reports say original SNL cast member Dan Aykroyd has been sworn into the Hinds County Sheriff Department’s reserve unit outside Jackson, Mississippi.
The 61-year-old apparently approached the department about becoming involved after spending time in the area while filming the James Brown biopic, “Get on Up.”
The Canadian native made a short speech at his swearing-in ceremony, praising the officers’ work in the face of financial difficulties.
"It's an honor to join these ranks today,” said Aykroyd. “I understand the challenges that law enforcement face in today's world.
"I am able to go all over the world now and talk up this county, talk up this state and talk up the people of the Hinds County Sheriff's Department," he continued.
The “Blues Brother” star also shared his goal of raising money for units who "can't even afford ammunition for practice."
This is not the first time that the comedic actor has joined a real-life crime-fighting division. He served two law enforcement agencies in Louisiana for nearly 16 years, reports Mississippi's Clarion-Ledger.
Besides the title, Aykroyd also received his own badge and uniform, and made sure to compliment his new boss before heading out!
"I don't think there's a better dressed sheriff in the United States," he said of Hinds County Sheriff Tyrone Lewis.
"This man is sure styling, and he backs it up with intelligence, integrity and real care for his personnel."
