What is it about law enforcement that makes it so delightful when they actually try to have fun in social media? It's probably just enjoyable to see the softer side of people who are trained to use deadly force and deal with the bleaker aspects of society.
The Seattle police set the bar in this regard, of course, with their fascinating and amusing Twitter account. But now, the Instagram account of the Reykjavik, Iceland, police force has been brought to our attention—and it's a real mosaic of cute.
It's full of fun pics of animals and kids and people on the force doing goofy things. "Police kitty in training," says the caption on the photo above, along with the hashtag #copcat.
Sure, humanizing any police force can lead to better relations with citizens, and a safer community overall. But this is also just about being real, not taking things too seriously and delivering useful information in a more entertaining package.
