ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – ‘The Incredible Hulk’ has joined two New Mexico sheriff’s departments.

Thursday night, Lou Ferrigno, who starred as the “Hulk” in the classic television series, was sworn in as a Socorro County Sheriff’s Deputy. Right afterward, he took the same oath for Bernalillo County.

Ferrigno says it was his dad, who served as a New York City Police officer for 26 years, that inspired him to travel the country supporting local law enforcement.

“Growing up with a police officer I’ve learned to respect law enforcement. I’ve seen what he’s gone through, I’ve seen sometimes the turmoil behind the badge,” Ferrigno said.

Ferrigno has also be deputized in Los Angeles and Arizona.
