TULSA, Oklahoma - Actor Joshua Morrow has played the role of Nick Newman on the Young and the Restless for more than two decades.

But, for just one day, he flew home to Tulsa to see, firsthand, how some of the city's specially trained officers keep his family safe.

Monday, the Tulsa Police Special Operations Team gave Morrow a full tutorial.

“To be able to show him what we get to do and tactics we have, we just get to share some stuff with people that have an interest,” said Tulsa police captain, Mike Eckert.

Morrow said, “It is such an empowering feeling just looking through the scope.”

The Hollywood actor, but hometown Oklahoman, said it’s an honor to better understand what the police officers do to keep the community safe.
