VIDEO: Michigan Police Department Swears in Cat as Officer

Pawfficer Donut has been sworn in as the Troy (MI) Police Department's Police cat. Judges Kirsten Nielsen Hartig and Maureen McGinnis asked Donut to raise her right paw and officially swore her in, badge and all, at the Troy Police Department with other officers and even Chief Gary Mayer looking on.

This all began in March when the Troy Police Department put out a challenge on Twitter saying it would get a police cat if it received 10,000 followers by April. It reached its goal weeks early, reports Michigan Live.

Pawfficer Donut will be used to help raise awareness for pet adoptions and rescues, also interacting with people in the community and on social media. She will live with a fellow Troy police officer who already has two adult cats at home. Pawfficer Donut will also spend some of her time at the police station.
