The New Zealand Police have welcomed their newest cop on the beat:
Constable Elliot, who happens to be a Guinea Pig.
Elliot is the pet of one of the police staff. He appears in social media and disseminates good advice. For example: In one tweet, Elliot advises to remove valuables from your cars to avoid theft.
He would wear a body cam, but officials say they tried it already and got tired of reviewing footage of wheel running and water bottle licking.
