PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island’s “dancing cop” is returning to the streets of Providence for the holidays.

Retired policeman Tony Lepore plans to entertain motorists and pedestrians at the intersection of Dorrance and Westminster streets from noon to 1:30 p.m. EST weekdays beginning Tuesday and running through Christmas Eve.

The 66-year-old Mr. Lepore began injecting dance moves into his police work in 1984 while directing traffic in downtown Providence.

After Mr. Lepore retired, the city invited him back to direct traffic during the holidays. Since then, he’s taken his show on the road as a performer appearing at schools and on national television shows.
