When the Vaughn, N.M., police chief had to step down because of pending felony charges (he can’t carry a gun), and the other town police officer had to step down because of a recent assault convinction (he also can’t carry a gun), Nikka the town’s drug sniffing dog was the (sort of) last man standing.
… the only qualified member of the Vaughn Police Department is Nikka, a drug-sniffing dog. Non-certified officers can’t make arrests and can’t carry firearms.
But don’t worry about the residents of the small town, the local county sheriff is on it…
“I visit the town at least once a month,” said Lucero. “The important thing is to keep a presence so residents know we’re there to help if we’re needed.”
Should Nikka need backup help, the LOLCats are available.
