Multi-tasking Officer/Mom’s Day: from chasing down robbery suspect, to homework, taking DARE kids to movies #girlpower

How did you spend Leap Day?

Officer Anna Mercado of Community Policing, the Cleveland Police Foundation’s Officer of the Year for 2014, had a very interesting Leap Day. She worked her 8 hours, on the way home witnessed a robbery, chased down one of the suspects with the help of a valiant and brave citizen, then took the time to take several young ladies to an advanced screening of Disney’s animated movie Zootopia. Anna volunteered and took the kids to the movie on her own time, because she is an amazing police officer, an amazing woman, and an amazing example to all females that don that blue uniform and take the oath to protect the people of this city!! How fitting that the movie features a female detective set out to prove she is as good a cop as any man!! Anna and these young fans celebrated Leap Day with Officer Judy Hopps while enjoying @DisneyZootopia before the movie opens in theaters this Friday, 3/4. #‎Zootopia
