It was a day to remember for Lucas Lee Chao, 9.

The Asian resident got the nicest surprise of his life when he saw a Dubai Police supercar at his door.

The youngster got to become a police officer for the day and even ride in a luxury patrol car.

The gesture by Dubai Police came after his father contacted the force and asked them to fulfil his son's wish.

Lucas got to drive around the streets of Dubai and was even presented with his own uniform.

Photographs of the event were posted to the force's social media pages but no further details were revealed.

Lucas's parents thanked Dubai Police for making their son's wish come true and said it brought him such happiness.
