I read this article in the Dallas Morning news.

Shaquille O'Neal, the towering Los Angeles Lakers center, has lofty law enforcement aspirations and has started taking special classes to be part of a police reserve force. "I just have a love for policemen because they've always been the real heroes in my life," he told the Los Angeles Daily News. Mr O'Neal, 29, is attending classes offered by the county's Sheriff's Department for harbor patrol duty. The 7-Foot-1, 315-pounder even has a custom uniform and a size 22EEE boots. Law enforcement officials know they have a potential recruiting spokeman in the charismatic NBA superstar but say Mr.O'Neal has not asked for special privileges.
