Officer Clovis    (April Fool's Day - 2017)

The Pittsboro Police Department announced the addition of Officer Clovis to its force. Clovis was the world's first "trained and certified narcotics detection feline." The PPD noted that cats offered a number of advantages over dogs as narcotics detectors. They're easier to transport in patrol vehicles via a cat carrier, they can easily jump and climb allowing them to search more areas, and they're adept at being video recorded as evidenced by the millions of cat videos online.
