Did you know that some police departments tolerate sleeping on the job? Well, in this video, you’re about to see that’s true.
There’s a new member of the Bristol, Rhode Island Police Force, and his name happens to be Brody. He’s a 12-week-old chocolate lab who went through extensive training for his role as a comfort dog.
Why not a bomb-sniffing or narcotics dog? School resource officer Keith Medeiros thought that a comfort dog might be a better choice during stressful times.
Everyone who walks into the station feels a little happier the minute they see the K9. People want to hug and pet him, and when they do, their faces light up.
Brody’s swearing-in ceremony was streamed on Facebook Live. On the big day, Officer Medeiros brought Brody to the station to meet the police chief.
Brody must have been celebrating his imminent swearing-in a little too much the night before because he slept through the entire ceremony. However, that didn’t prevent the police chief from making him the newest member of the department.
