WINSLOW TOWNSHIP - A 5-year-old in New Jersey picked up the tab for lunch for his police department.

William Evertz Jr. saved up his allowance for seven months and went to a Subway store on Wednesday to get sandwiches for officers in Winslow Township. His mother says he told her he wanted the officers to rest so they could protect the town.

Police made the boy an honorary officer and gave him a special shirt and badges. He also got a ride home in a police car with lights and siren.
