When Port Lavaca Police Department in Port Lavaca, Texas decided that they needed a feline officer to help them manage their office and keep the city safe, they recruited a ginger and white cat from the shelter.

He was aptly named The Captain!

Last April, The Captain, a rescue cat, officially joined the police department after they adopted him from the Calhoun County Humane Society.

The Captain made himself right at home by lounging on the big couch as if he'd lived there all his life.

The ginger cat quickly fit into his new role as their very own police cat. He would jump in the inbox to remind the officers of their daily duties and watch the city from the second story window, keeping everyone safe.

The Captain, as his name implies, now runs the department and gets the utmost respect from everyone there.

Inspecting an officer's gear. The Captain is a purrfectionist!

They brought him his very own police uniform so he can run the crew like the true Captain that he is.
