VIDEO: Police officer wows a crowd with his secret talent

Officer Ronnie Coleman has a hidden talent… he can really bang on the drums and he does it well. He played the drums at a high school game, joining in when invited. What a performance!!! It was for Heritage High School where he went to school and was a drummer as well. The kids there love him and he shows this is a great way to connect with them.

Cops are just like everyone else and Officer Coleman is smart enough to relate to students and be part of their culture. If anything serious happens, then they’ll know who to call. It’s the best kind of PR the police department can utilize there. Plus, this guy is an awesome drummer…. he just is.

From Viral Nova:

Officer Ronnie Coleman is best known at Heritage High School for keeping everyone safe and happy.

What most students didn’t know about him until a recent football game, however, was that he could absolutely kill it on the drums. He’s so good that the school drum line let him join them for a performance!

As it turns out, this wasn’t exactly Officer Coleman’s first time playing with the school band. He’s actually an alumnus of the school and he was in the band back then!

How incredible is that?

Coleman said he just wants the kids to know he’s there for them and that they can always come to him with concerns. He used this as an opportunity to connect with students. I think it’s pretty safe to say that his plan worked.

In a recent Facebook video shared by the high school, Coleman can be seen joining the marching band drum line with a few students. According to WSET, Coleman graduated from Heritage High School in 2006. He was in the drum line and decided to join in with the band at the first football game of the season. He played during the next game too.

Social media loves this video. 13WSET.com claims there are over 1 million views and counting. It’s been shared over 61,000 times. That’s what I call viral.

Coleman said he just wants the kids to know he’s there for them and they can come to him anytime with concerns. “I just really wanted to get back on the drums and connect with the kids and let them see that I was also a person and I wasn’t just a badge and a gun standing in the halls enforcing the rules, and they love it, they’re really acceptable to me being there and playing with them and having a fun time,” he said.

Officer Coleman said the kids asked him to come back to games and keep playing, and he plans to do just that.
