SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA) – How cool is this?

Officers with the Sarasota Police Department were responding to a burglary on Monday when they were greeted by a majestic bald eagle.

Sarasota Police Officer Tschetter and Officer Coppinger snapped these photos when they were responding to the burglary on Bay Shore Road.

“The eagle kept watch before checking out one of our new patrol cars and then moving along. It’s all in a day protecting and serving the City of Sarasota!” wrote the Sarasota Police Department on its Facebook page. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
