Detroit Police Department Swears in ‘Pawfficer’ Kitten

It all started back in March when the Troy PD in Michigan put out a Twitter challenge saying it would get a police cat if it received 10,000 followers by April.


It worked!  The internet responded with a resounding YES!  Cats were interviewed for the job

and finally one was chosen.  Meet Officer Donut!

Officer Donut will help raise awareness for pet adoptions and rescues as well as raise money for the Michigan Humane Society.

Here he is being sworn in!

Pawfficer Donut will live with a fellow Troy police officer who already has two adult cats at home. She will also spend some of her time at the station.
