FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - The Broward Sheriff’s Office has deputized Shaquille O’Neal.

The law enforcement agency took to Twitter Friday morning to announce the newest member of their team.

The 47-year-old former NBA star now works as an auxiliary deputy for BSO.

He met and took pictures with other deputies and sat down with BSO Sheriff Gregory Tony to discuss the different ways law enforcement works to keep communities safe.
