Drug Cops Seek to Use Monkey in Enforcment Efforts
Can you imagine having your house searched and the cop who walks in with the Kevlar vest using the two-way radio is a monkey?
[A] police SWAT team in Mesa, Ariz., has applied for $100,000. from the federal government to buy a capuchin monkey and train it to perform law enforcement duties. Until now, monkeys have only been on the other side of the law, but officers say a police monkey could search buildings, find bodies, and gather information with a video camera and two-way radio. The officer who wrote the application says the monkey itself would cost $15,000, with the rest of the grant going toward equipment and upkeep.
The monkey would be trained in special-ops intelligence.
