The Gainsville Police Department — based in Gainesville, FL — got a little more love than it was anticipating this week. When they took to Facebook to share a photo of some of the officers helping out in the wake of Hurricane Irma, the post quickly went viral. Garnering over 200,000 shares and 150,000 comments, Officers Nordman, Hamill, and Rengering became instant celebs because of their insanely good looks!
“Part of the night crew getting ready to do some work,” the picture's caption reads. And though we’re sure the Gainesville community is thankful for the three officers’ service, all Facebook could do was gush over the men.
“These guys really change the meaning of the song ‘F--k the Police…’” one commenter wrote, while another added, “So, looks like my next vacation will be spent in Gainesville rolling through stop signs and driving with a tail light out every evening until I've been pulled over by the entire night shift.”
After attracting such a response, the trio has since updated the post. “We are dying with the comments. You've actually made our chief blush with some of them… MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands,” the new caption reads. "We can confirm that Officer Rengering (far right with the amazing hair) IS SINGLE.”
The law enforcement officers did make one hilarious plea though. “Please do not call 9-1-1 and request this group respond to your ‘incident,’” they said. In the end, the three men assured everyone that they enjoyed the attention, and are actually going to use their new-found fame for good! “Thank you all for the hilarious comments...they have brightened our time up here,” they wrote. “As for the calendar, we are going to try and do something fairly quickly and funds raised will go to Hurricane Irma recovery here in Florida.”
Well, we'll definitely be buying one of these calendars. We wonder if our local police officers are this dreamy…
