The police in Durham could be the first ever to use cats to fight crime!
A five year old girl called Eliza wrote to the chief of police to suggest cats would be an excellent addition to the force.
In her letter Eliza said that cats are great at listening out for danger plus they’re pretty good climbers too.
The police have replied to say that they’ll definitely look at how cats can help fight crime.
Inspector Richie Allen said, “Of course, if it smells a rat we’ll expect it to catch it.”
