DORAL, Fla. (AP) – Former NBA basketball star Shaquille O’Neal is now a reserve police officer in South Florida.

Doral Police Chief Donald De Lucca swore the retired basketball player in during a ceremony Tuesday afternoon. Shaq had originally applied in September. He will not receive a salary and will cover his own insurance costs.

O’Neal will commute to work from his homes in Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. De Lucca told The Miami Herald that Shaq will mostly be doing community work, serving as a role model for children.

O’Neal has previously served as a reserve police officer for Miami Beach and Golden Beach in Florida; in Tempe, Arizona and the Port of Los Angeles.

During Shaq’s two-decade career, he played in Orlando, Los Angeles, Miami, Phoenix, Cleveland and Boston.
