Grandmas Reporting For Duty

(WCHS/WVAH) It's called the Grandma Unit, or G-unit as their t-shirts say.

11 grandmas were just sworn in this week.

They are not going to be out arresting people or pulling you over.

But make no mistake, these women make up the newest unit at the Charleston Police Department, and they're ready to hit the ground running.

According to WCHS, These grandmas are going to be busy carrying out their mission of spreading love and hugs, something they say you can never have too much of.

"Sometimes I'm not feeling good or I'm feeling low and somebody will give me a hug, and I'll feel better, and then I'll share my hug with someone else," says G-unit member Karen Smith.

Errol Randle of The Charleston, WV Police says that so far, it's a hit."Oh my goodness it's a win for everybody. They feel good by doing it, and they want to do it. That's what helps this awesome partnership."

So if you get pulled over buy one of the women in the G-unit, put down your phone or your bags and get ready for a hug.
