The legal age for an adult is 18. What the officer was likely referring to was the age at which a minor can be charged and prosecuted as an adult in criminal proceedings. This is more or less standard in all US states. A 17-year-old can be considered an adult under such circumstances but this is not related to the legal age of majority. It might also been in reference to the parents of a 17-year-old needing to obtain a court order to force the minor to return to the family residence before authorities could take action. A 17-year-old would not be able to rent or lease a dwelling, buy a vehicle, or enter into any financial transactions or in some states drop out of high school unless they were legally emancipated by a court.
