Police Cat Pawficcer Badges Joins Troy Police Department

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Welcome to the Troy Police Pawfficer Badges.

After a tight Twitter poll run by the @TroyMI_Police account to name their incoming police cat, it was revealed that the newest member of their department will be called Pawfficer Badges.

According to the police department`s Twitter announcement, the Pawfficer`s official duties will include community policing, supervising the K9 unit, and of course, providing cuddles."

With police brutality and racial profiling so much in the news these days, police need to soften their image, and nothing will accomplish that goal better than adopting a kitty cat as a police station mascot.

I`m used to seeing police with intimidating K-9 dogs, it`s refreshing to see burly cops playing with a cuddly kitten.

Hopefully the playful nature of kittens will rub off on the police officers, and they won`t engage in police brutality.

Police cat Pawfficer Badges is a purr-fect addition to the Troy Police Department, and I wish her success in her career.
