Johnston PD embraces friend from a galaxy far, far away

Local News

JOHNSTON – The force is strong with the Johnston Police Department. 

School Resource Officer James Slack brings his pal Yoda (yes, from Star Wars) as a way to build relationships with the community. 

“It’s become a great piece and people like it,” Ofc. Slack said. “They make comments about him being in the car, and he’s had 75 to 100 photographs from the different stores we stop at.” 

Yoda never leaves Ofc. Slack’s side, and the department says they are working on getting him a uniform.
