Berkeley PD whoring out photo ops?

Found this on the interwebz.




Is this common practice?





I realize many police officers moonlight in various non-police roles (bouncers, private security, acting gigs), but this is on their own time and not officially recognized by their PD employers.


But this is on the City of Berkeley’s official website;  this is their police department’s public interface with the public. This dubious photo-op practice is sanctioned by the taxpayer-supported civic entity.


Given the less than apolitical practices of the Berkeley PD, I wonder if they would extend such an offer to Trump supporters?
