If 18, police arrived at the scene of a teenager’s house party, and it was actually a good reason to do so.

Micah Schieber couldn’t believe his eyes when several police cars pulled up in front of his house, while he was holding an open-house style party for his graduation from Midland, Michigan. His father had been working for the Midland Police Department, before he passed away, and all the officers came to pay tribute.

Schieber’s father, died in 2007 from an undetected heart condition, WJRT reports. Micah is only six years old at the time. When it came time to plan his graduation party, he asked his mother to come to the police department. “I thought it would be cool to be a part of my family, and my father at my graduation, because that is the one thing I will always miss him,” he told the outlet.

Midland police chief Cliff Block, told WJRT that he had not a moment’s hesitation. “I knew that we wanted to do something to make it happen. I have had the honor of working with Chad Schieber,” he said.

“In the car, after car, after car, I was stunned,” Micah said. “I was left speechless, for the sake of their hearts.”

Schieber, aunt, posted the footage of the heart-warming moment for YouTube. She captioned it, “Micah said Schieber was invited to the Midland City Police Department, to the graduating batch. In honor of his father, a Midland police department, Chad Schieber, who died while running the Chicago Marathon in October of 2007, fifteen members of the department, appeared at the party in full uniform. Micah presented them all with gifts, including a Michigan shaped piece of art on the wall, with a thin blue line, which is when Micah made it in his welding class. Everyone enjoyed the delicious donuts at the Apple Orchard!”

To top it off, the officer allegedly gave Micah $111 in honor of his late father’s badge number. She gave him a trading card of his father, whom Micah describes as a “very, very special.” He also told WJRT, “I don’t have one, and I didn’t even know they made them. And so, with the opening of the gift, and the first just a little bit, hit me, hit me hard.”
