Bearded Dragon Sworn in as Police Officer

The Avondale, Arizona, Police Department announced the acquisition of their new drug-sniffing bearded dragon -on April Fools Day in 2016. The drug-sniffing part was a joke, but the bearded dragon is real. His name is Iroh, and he's been the police department's mascot since then.

“Iroh has turned out to be a valuable member of the Avondale Police family,” according to a Facebook post on Feb. 15. “His skill set is so extensive that we have cross trained him in many areas.”

This week, Iroh was promoted from mascot to police officer. Get the whole story of Iroh and the cops who love him at AZ Family.  -via Fark
