ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- An Alpharetta Police officer got emotional when talking about a program for kids on Thursday.

Over the past few days, police, firefighters and others from the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety have teamed up with the volunteers for the iCan Bike camp.

The camp is designed to teach kids with special needs how to ride a bike. For many of the kids, it's their first time behind the handle bars. For Officer Amanda Clay, it's a chance to show the great things public servants can do.

"People look at me, and they see a police officer," a tearful Clay told 11Alive. "But I'm more than a uniform. I'm more than arresting. I can make a difference. And for these 40 kids, I have."
