Erik Estrada keep up his reserve police officer status

Erik Estrada returned to the U.S. state of Indiana to keep up the reserve police officer status he earned as part of the canceled CBS reality show "Armed & Famous."

"When I make a commitment to be somewhere, it's done, like gold," Estrada, 58, said, according to an interview published Monday in The Star Press. "And I'll be here next year too, and the year after that."

"And I hope, 30 or 40 years from now, God willing, that when it's time to put me in my grave, I'll go in my Muncie uniform and badge," he said.

Estrada will spend the week participating in various training events and will ride with officers again while on duty, Police Chief Joe Winkle said. He said an eight-hour monthly service requirement would be waived for Estrada.

The former "CHiPs" star also intends to help with the Muncie Police Department's annual "Shop with a Cop" charity event.

After filming for "Armed & Famous" wrapped, Estrada also received deputy status with the sheriff's department in Bedford County, Virginia.
