    Why doesn’t the officer on the far left not have a hat on?

    • LOL! hey Hat i guess same reason the other two up the back does not have any on also??depends on who you are i guess??

  3. Django unchained says:

    The officer on the left looks unprofessional and should not have been allowed to be in the picture. I hope when the Commissioner of Police sees this he will give that inexperienced officer some well needed advice.
