GRAND FORKS - From the stage to a police cruiser, up and coming country music star Kelsea Ballerini joined the University of North Dakota Police Department on Sunday.

UND PD tweeted at her last Monday after noticing she has been missing her dog while on tour with Keith Urban.

So they sent her some puppy love from their K9s Bear and Ben - and she pawed right back at the opportunity to come join them on the force.

Instead of handing you a ticket to pay a fine - it was a ticket for her show with Keith Urban Sunday night at the Ralph.

“It was just a fun experience and then to see the look on people's faces when she jumped out of the car and went and started talking to 'em and taking pictures. She never told anybody no for a picture, which was kind of cool to see,” UND Police Department Lt. Danny Weigel said.

UND police has tweeted other artists performing at the Ralph before but have never gotten a response until now.

Their next most wanted artist - Kane Brown.
