Officer Norman rose to fame through his Instagram account, that chronicles his interactions with the community he patrols, a community he describes as "low income." He is a pillar of his community and he comports himself in a way that truly makes you appreciate the jobs that police officers can do for those that they serve and protect.

He met Rosalynd while they were both shopping at a local Walgreens. Rosalynd was already somewhat familiar with him because of his Instagram fame, and the two of them hit it off exchanging numbers.

Officer Norman didn't just fall in love with Rosalynd, but also with her 5-year-old son Riley.

"Rosalynd kind of made it clear early on in our relationship that if my relationship with Riley didn't really gel, then she probably wouldn't have been so eager to establish a long term relationship with me, because obviously she wanted her son to feel comfortable. His personality is very infectious and he trusts me with his mom and that really means a lot to me and her. [He knows] that I would take care of her, and not just keep her safe, but keep him safe as well," said Norman.

Officer Norman spoke about when he knew that Rosalynd was "the one" for him.

"Because I've been involved in the community for years, I remember when we first met and started dating, I would mention to her about, the events that I would have to attend in the community. Whether it's speaking event or making an appearance wherever, and not asking her to go, but just making her aware of what was going on in my schedule, and right away she would make it a point to, to be there, to really support me," said Norman. "The work I do in the community is really really close in my heart, the fact that she made that choice in her life early on in our relationship, to attempt to be with me I guess really, it meant a lot. [Because] she supported what I've loved for so many years I think that was probably one big, I guess key moment in our relationship where I knew that she would be 'The One.'"

The video of the moment Norman proposed is making the rounds on social media, and it's melting hearts.
