GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCMH/WTHR) — A photo posted by the Gainesville Police Department has been shared nearly 200,000 times after drawing some flirtatious comments.
The police department posted the photo of Officers Nordman, Hamill and Rengering getting ready to get to work on Sept. 10 after Irma worked its way through Florida.
The post was almost immediately flooded with comments from interested ladies.
"Just so we're clear. When exactly does the night shift begin? Asking for a friend," said Cristal Loe.
"Uhm, a court date is still a 'date' right?!" asked Yvonne Daniels.
"Yall should do a calendar, where you're half dressed. For charity," said Amy Reed.
Charity Grace replied, "I'm Charity and I approve this message."
The post now has more thank 125,000 comments on it. Gainesville PD took all the reactions in jest, replying to many of the comments with playful gifs.
The department then posted an update to the fans:
1. We are dying with the comments. You've actually made our chief blush with some of them.
2. MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands.
3. We can confirm that Officer Rengering (far right with the amazing hair) IS SINGLE.
4. On another note, Officer Rengering is being placed into Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety.
5. Please do not call 9-1-1 and request this group respond to your "incident"
6. There WILL be a calendar.
Thank you all for the hilarious comments...they have brightened our time up here. 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.
It wasn't long before Twitter caught wind of the officers, too.
Tuesday, another Florida police department got in on the action, with a little friendly competition.
The Sarasota Police Department posted a photo of four officers after they helped rescue victims from floodwaters. "Gainesville Police Department has nothing on us," they challenged.
We'll be on the lookout for those calendars.
