The New South Wales Mounted Police Department has many four-legged members, but one in particular stands out. Meet Ed, a ginger cat whose official title is “Rodent Control.” Ed sleeps in the stables where the horses of the mounted unit sleep, and seemed a natural addition to the team.


Ed even has his own police jacket. Each morning, Ed visits all of the constables as they receive their orders for the day. Then he heads to the stables where he usually patrols for mice, then takes a nap.

While Ed might not be intimidating to your average suspect, he certainly intimidates the mice and keeps them in check.
