Role in the Film

Judy receives her badge

After Judy Hopps completes her intense training at the Zootopia Police Academy, a ceremony is held to celebrate the graduates. Standing at a podium onstage, Mayor Leodore Lionheart announces that his Mammal Inclusion Initiative has produced its first police academy graduate and then presents Judy, declaring her the ZPD's very first rabbit officer.

Judy walks onstage as her family applauds her and Assistant Mayor Bellwether presents her with her badge. Then Lionheart, after assigning Judy to Precinct 1 in Savanna Central, pushes Bellwether aside and poses with Judy for the cameras while Judy beams happily.
