The boy, who has been charged as a juvenile with impersonating an officer, walked into the Grand Crossing (3rd) District station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave., dressed in a Chicago police uniform, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The boy, who reported for duty about 1:30 p.m., partnered with another police officer for about five hours.

He probably lost his chance at ever becoming an actual Police Officer now. Pretty sure "impersonating an Officer" doesn't look too good on your resume.

Its hard to believe the other Cop wouldn't have realized sooner.
How would the kid have known all the codes and jargon etc.
Unless hes interested in it and has researched all this info before hand.
Which leaves the question WHY this kid did this in the first place?
Did some adult put him him up to it?To try and make the cops look stupid?
Its understandable that a 14yo can look and talk like a 20yo.
But not resemble a cop who has had training.
Where did he get the Police uniform?
It would have had to be something a little more realistic than something from a costume store.
This is one very strange incident.
