'Hulk' actor Lou Ferrigno shares photo of police scene while serving as a reserve sheriff

Ferrigno was named an honorary officer with the Syracuse Police Department two days prior

"Hulk" actor Lou Ferrigno shared a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what it is like to be on a police "ride along," after being named an honorary officer with the Syracuse (New York) Police Department. 

The former bodybuilder is best known for his role as the ‘Hulk’ on the sci-fi TV series "The Incredible Hulk."

During an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Monday, Ferrigno discussed the importance of supporting officers as crime surges.  

He said, "It's all about respecting that leadership, because most kids today, there's no God, there's no respect. They have no respect for themselves. That's why I'm fortunate."
