Taser the Safety Cat makes her home at the Gallatin Police Department however she travels throughout the City and County, helping Officer Alan Jones teach children about safety.
Taser the Cat’s life-size namesake comes from the department’s real cat, Taser, who was adopted by the department as a stray, several years ago. Now that the real Taser Cat is gone, Taser the Safety Cat lives on promoting safety to children and teens during special events held by the department and at events where she is invited.
The main focus of the mascot is to help the Gallatin Police Department reduce childhood apprehension of law enforcement officials and to promote safety tips across the City. However, Taser has been spotted at several charity events that the Gallatin Police Department participates in such as “Shop With a Cop/Fire Fighter”, Santa Classic, and Square Fest.
