Leave it to the City of Wildwood to be trendsetters in the world of police work.

Officials at the Wildwood Police Department have announced that, just in time for the big day Sunday, Officer E. Bunny will be joining the force.

The department states on their Facebook page:

"Officer Bunny will be utilized to lure offenders into a false sense of security, by hiding eggs and candy. This should bring the offenders into the open, at which time Vera will spring into action, if we can stop her from eating all the marshmallow peeps!"
