Sometimes people refer to police officers as “pigs”, but rather than take it as an insult, the Anderson Police Department is embracing the image. We’re currently in the Chinese Year of the Pig, and a large banner has been hung on the gate to the Anderson Police Station with a picture of a boar along with the words “APD Celebrates The Year Of The Pig”. By explanation, a posting on the department’s Facebook Page points out that pigs are gentle, intelligent, clean and courageous. They have thick coats that act as a layer of armor, and they are very intelligent problem solvers, which works for the betterment of the entire farm. A photo of the banner can be seen on the KQMS Facebook Page.
