Meet Ed the First Cat Cop in Australia

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police dogs are known for their ferociousness, but there are some jobs that a canine can`t do. Enter Ed " the latest recruit keeping cat crime in check.

It all started when police in New South Wales, Australia recently had a pest problem in the horse stables that cosily house their horse troops. The cops enlisted the cat to keep vermin away from the Sydney Mounted Police."


For decades police departments all over the world have enlisted horses and canines to help fight crime. Even police departments in small towns have a canine officer, and it`s not unusual to see mounted police officers in big cities keeping demonstrations from becoming riots.

Ed the cat has been recruited by the New South Wales Police Department to patrol the police stables. Ed like most cats spends most of his time sleeping, but when he`s awake he chases away the rats from the stables.

Police in America should recruit cats, a kitty police officer would help to humanize police officers.
