It’s a special day for one Allen Bowden Elementary student as he celebrated his 11th birthday with the help of some very special friends.

Kaedyn Jones’ mother reached out to her local police department through Facebook, asking for their help to make her son's birthday one he would never forget.

Kaedyn was sitting in gym with his classmates, waiting to go over the new school handbook with the principal, when just outside the door a special surprise was waiting to come in.

But he wasn't sure what to think about it all.

"I just thought they were going to talk," said Kaedyn.

Instead, they were there to sing happy birthday.

Kaedyn is a big fan of police officers and dreams of one day putting on the uniform and badge.

"He was in shock at first because he is shy but as you can see he is running around talking to all of them," said Kayleanne Jones, Kaedyn's mom.

Jones said Kaedyn is autistic and has a genetic skin disorder and because of it, he's sometimes picked on at school.

"She figured maybe the presence of police and the other kids knowing that we’re his friend would leave him alone about his condition," said Major Mike Reed, Sapulpa Police Department.

"All of these officers out here, I could never imagine that it would be this big for my son’s birthday," Jones said.

Sapulpa police didnt stop there, right after school they surprised him yet again with a surprise birthday party, complete with gifts and cake.
