After face painting activity, which Erykah already wrote about, local policemen made a Police Dog Performance with well–trained german shepherds. The show was really impressive and delightful. At least they managed to attract kids, so they forgot about face painting and we could chill out, everybody was happy.
The shot I took during the performance. This policeman was MC for a day, who presided over the event and introduced guests and entertainers. He was doing it pretty well, made loads of jokes and his voice was probably the most appropriate for this particular purpose.
Then I thought, okay he’s good at this, but how good policeman is he? What’s it like to be a cop in Madeira? What happens in their daily life from waking up to going home?
I’d ask my boss Antonio (whose 2nd job is a police officer) before we meet each other at work again, but I should have finished writing this article, so I will either imagine, improvise, or just try to do some research online.
Turns out, there is not so much information about Crime Index in Madeira, because crime doesn’t actually exist here :)) so it’s shouldn’t be so hard to be a police officer here.
From now on I already know what I want to become when I grow up…
