On behalf of the ARMED & FAMOUS production, the cast of CBS’ new reality series, surprised the Muncie, Ind. Police Department with a special thank you gift, three fully-equipped 2007 Hummer SUVs, all loaded with standard police vehicle equipment. The presentation was made today during a community celebration in Muncie, Ind., which marked the end of production as well as the celebrity’s service as Muncie police officers.
The Muncie Police Department’s Chief, Joe Winkle, was so impressed with Jack Osbourne’s abilities as a new cadet, that he extended an invitation to Osbourne during the ceremony to become a full-time member of the Muncie Police Department. Osbourne, who was moved by the offer, referred to his time in Muncie as "the most powerful experience he has ever been through in his life." Osbourne declined to relocate to Muncie, Ind., but did ask if the Chief would provide a letter of recommendation for him to a police academy in Los Angeles County.
Chief Winkle also honored the cast with a commemorative plaque from the Muncie Police Department that will hang in the Fraternal Order of the Muncie Police alongside their fellow officers. Munice’s Mayor Dan Canan presented the cast with a certificate of appreciation from the City of Muncie for their dedication and service
