On March 6, the Troy, Michigan police department’s Twitter account (@TroyMI_police) account had just 4,000 followers, less than half of what it needed. To attract more followers, the Troy police said if they reached 10,000 followers, they could get an official cat for the police department.
Not surprisingly, this tactic worked and now the police department is working with the Humane Society to bring in an office cat for therapeutic purposes. The cat will stay in the office but go home every night with one of the officers. While in the police department, the cat will likely boss around then officers and the K-9 dogs as well, so make sure you don’t get arrested in Troy or else you might have to face the wrath of the department cat.
