Fourteen-year-old Caleb Sutton, of White Pine, got a huge birthday surprise on Sunday night.

Local law enforcement agencies from Cocke County and Jefferson County "crashed" his birthday party at the Kidz Kountry recreation area.

Caleb, who has cerebral palsy, ADHD and bleeding on the brain, has always wanted to be a police officer, and the Dandridge Police Department said "all he wanted was for a couple police officers to stop by and say hello."

"Every time my birthday comes...I invite the whole police academy," Caleb said. "So we can have a good time, talk, laugh and cut up."

According to the White Pine Police Department, Caleb's mom dropped off an official birthday party invitation for the department on Saturday.

The White Pine teen got more than a couple as members from the White Pine Police Department, the Dandridge Police Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, the Tennessee Constables Association, the Cocke County Sheriff's Office, UT Lifestar, Jefferson County 911, Tennessee Highway Patrol, North Hamblen Fire Department, the White Pine Fire Department, Lakeway Fire Department, the Baneberry Fire Department and JHooks Towing showed up to help him celebrate.

"The look on Caleb's face was priceless," Dandridge police said.

Caleb has always wanted to be a police officer and said, "It's a dream come true. I want to be one."
