Neighbors in Niagara Falls will soon have more muscle mass in their corner. A lot more.

Lou Ferrigno, the actor and retired bodybuilder who brought 'The Hulk' to life in the 1970s and 80s in all his green glory, will be sworn in Friday as an honorary officer for both Niagara Falls, New York and Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The ceremony will take place at 9 a.m. outside the Falls police station on the U.S. side of the border. Honor guards from both countries will be present.

The departments are honoring Ferrigno for his anti-bullying campaign. After the ceremony, he will present an anti-bullying message to students at Harry F. Abate Elementary School.

Ferrigno is no stranger to law enforcement. He was sworn in as a reserve deputy for the San Luis Obispo County, California Sheriff's Office in 2012 and a special deputy with the Delaware County, Ohio Sheriff's Office in 2013.
