Arlington Police Chief To Work Christmas, Giving An Officer The Holiday Off

Dec 16, 2013

Consider it a perfect Christmas gift for a cop.

The Arlington police chief will be working Christmas Day, giving an officer a well-deserved day off.

Chief Will D. Johnson recently announced a holiday photo caption contest for evening shift officers. Officers wrote a caption to accompany a silly posed photograph, which included K9 Mojo standing near several boxes of doughnuts (of course) and a would-be burglar running off with an old television.

Johnson’s two daughters went through the submitted captions and chose a winner.

The winner, East Patrol Officer Brandon Evans, gets Christmas off while the police chief will report for duty at 2 p.m.

The winning caption?

“No jelly in the donuts? Looks like it’s burglar for lunch again.”
