I love, I love, I love my calendar boys!

It’s that time again, folks! Hott Cop calendar time!!

As always if you know of any 2017 cop calendars, send me a link, please!

The St. Louis County County Police have two very cute calendars available this year: 2017 Pits & Police and 2017 Cops & Kittens calendars. They are both $20 each and a portion of each sale goes towards the St. Louis County Police Welfare Association and St. Louis County Pet Adoption Center.

The 2017 Cops &Dogs calendar is also available. I’ve bought this several years and it’s a high quality calendar with lots of great pics.  The cost is $14.95 and they also sell previous years calendars for $7.95 and $6.95 depending on the year. They also sell an 80 page book for $42.95 with pics from previous calendars, available on the same webpage.

The Pasco Police Department has a 2017 Cops and Pups calendar for $20 each. I like that St. Louis County Police and the Pasco Police Department chose a more lighthearted approach, although I only see two pics from the Pasco PD’s calendar. I don’t see a complete preview.

Heartthrobs and Hounds calendar, which benefits some Texas animal shelters is available from Ricki Beason Rescue Photography at locations near Dallas, listed on their website. I’m not sure if it’s available online or not at this point, but I will attempt to find out and update this ASAP.

Finally the Calgary Police Service has a 2017 Canine Unit calendar for $10 plus $5 shipping and handling. I’m unclear at this point as to whether the calendar just features the K9 dogs or if the two legged officers are featured as well:). Anybody in the know, please let me know.

UPDATED (11.23.2016):

I forgot to include the 2017 VIK9s Calendar for $15 which benefits those all important canine officers. All proceeds will be used to donate bullet and stab protective vests for law enforcement dogs.

And the Charleston Firefighters have a 2017 Firefighter Calendar  for $20 which features firefighters posing with abused animals. The proceeds go to Toby’s Fund,  which is used to “treat injured abused and abandoned animals to sustain the first no-kill community in the Southeast.”

Lots of great choices, causes and Hott Cops this year!!!

Selfie after teen’s act of kindness toward cop goes viral

Ever since Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth lost his life at a gas pump recently, deputies can’t help but feel anxious.

“You shouldn’t be afraid to get gas or have your hand on your hip when you get gas,” Deputy Tommi Kelley remarked to CBS Houston affiliate KHOU-TV.

But Kelley wasn’t alone the last time she needed to fill up, the station reports.

“He walked up behind me and said, ‘Ma’m, ma’m,’ so our first reaction is, ‘Yes?”‘ said Kelley.

“I was like, ‘Can I watch you pump your gas,”‘ said McKinley Zoellner. “She asked me why and I said to make sure you’re safe.”

Woman Walks Into A Police Station To Hug A Cop

An elderly woman who walked into a police station on Monday surprised officers with her unique request.

She picked up a dispatch phone in the lobby of the Lake Arbor police station in Arvada, Colorado, to ask for a hug.

After listening to the woman explain how she was upset with the recent loss of officers across the country, including slain Fox Lake police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, dispatch complied and radioed-in to officers.

Within seconds, a sergeant responded: “This is Cruiser 12 — I’ll come get that hug.”

But another officer managed to beat him to it.
