If you don't do it Koosh, I'll be forced to! LOL

I don't fault Callie having the communicator either. Someone has to have it, like the Bat Signal, so I'd expect Callie to have it. It moves the plot along. What I do fault is how her having the communicator is ignored as having an advantage over the Enforcers, which is then used against them as them not doing their job or failing at it.
I'm probably thinking way too deeply into this, but what if the Enforcers were killing themselves to shave seconds off of their response time? What if Feral was constantly trying to figure out why he's a step behind the SWAT Kats when to responding? It's little things like that which show how unfair the situation is.
In fact, is Callie calling the Enforcers at all after alerting the SWAT Kats? Or are the Enforcers only getting alerts from concerned citizens?
If she isn't alerting them, and the Enforcers are getting hit with tardiness complaints, then that's really messed up.
This is why I have to side eye Felina getting the oh so cute nearly identical communicator in Succubus. If she keeps it and hides it from Feral, I'd consider that a major betrayal against him and her comrades at arms. She would be actively circumventing her Uncle. I would expect a really good explanation to why she would do that and not just lip service. In fact, I'd expect her to give it back once the danger was over.
