My life is now complete after seeing a macaque police officer. I always thought a monkey in a uniform would make a good cop.

Santisuk is a five-year-old macaque police officer working the beat in southern Thailand. Santisuk presence calms tensions at checkpoints and he even helps the local citizenry collect coconuts. This macop is a shining example to monkeys everywhere. Get out of a tree and help keep the peace, you lazy primates! Stats for Macaque Cops Trending: Older & Chilly
