"I was an officer when this happened and it sticks with us each and every day. Obviously today as the anniversary, to see an 8-year-old do this, it touches your heart. It really does," said Sargeant Shayne Glynn from Milan Police Department.

The police officers said this was a pleasant surprise and it warmed their hearts knowing kids still care.

Michael learned about 911 in school and says it was his idea to give back to the police and firefighters.
