The Troy Police Department is on a mission to add a police cat to their staff and their mission has found hundreds of supporters on social media.

The effort started on Troy Police Department's Twitter account, last week. The department has received a lot of support. They've also received some questions from those who are either confused or are more likely to be dog people.

The #PoliceCat campaign has proven to be a good way to engage the public and gain some followers. The Troy PD says they are trying to get 10,000 followers by April to get a cat. They had over 8,800 follower as of 10:15 a.m. on March 12.
