Three Florida cops are making temperatures rise in Irma-ravaged Florida, with hot-and-bothered social media users begging to be frisked and vowing to break the law to meet the trio.
The Gainesville Police Department posted a photo of the officers Sunday evening — as the three geared up to assist as the hurricane slammed the Sunshine State — with the caption: “Officers Nordman, Hamill and Rengering…part of the night crew getting ready to do some work. #Irma.”
The photo – shared more than 203,200 times – quickly became inundated with tens of thousands of comments regarding the smiling officers’ good looks that even “made our chief blush,” the department wrote in an update on the photo.
“I feel safer just looking at this picture,” Facebook user Tatiana Giraldo commented.
Commenter Robin Lewis quipped: “So if I don’t remain silent, will something be held against me? Just want to be clear on the rights.”
Katie Sonmor wrote: “The kinda photo that makes you want to intentionally break some kind of law.”
“If more officers looked like this there would be a lot less people out there resisting arrest,” Taber Lacie Holmes commented.
Darlene Wagner posted: “Excuse me while I commit a felony.”
Another commenter, Erica York, said: “‘Excuse me officer, I just robbed a store.. I need to be cuffed and frisked immediately.’ – Every woman in Florida after seeing this post.”
The police department got a kick out of the messages, posting in an update, “We are dying with the comments. You’ve actually made our chief blush with some of them.”
The department reported that the wives of Officers Nordman and Hamill “have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands.”
But, it noted that Officer Rengering, who is on the “far right with the amazing hair,” is single.
“On another note, Officer Rengering is being placed into Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety,” the department joked as it reminded people to “please do not call 9-1-1 and request this group respond to your ‘incident.’”
After commenters pleaded for a hunky police calendar, the department confirmed “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,” the department wrote.
