In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, it may be hard to find a silver lining.
Still, a group of police officers out of Florida unwittingly made millions of people across the country smile during their cleanup effort after posting a department selfie on Facebook.
Women across the country couldn’t help but notice that the kind and caring officers working so hard to help Irma victims were also, it must be said, smoking-hot.
Hundreds of thousands of women saw the photo on the Gainesville Police Department Facebook and chimed in to offer up their glowing opinions on the hunky trio.
After the destruction that Irma has caused, it’s heartwarming to see people coming together and joking around, even if it is about signing up for a voluntary frisk search.
The comments have been piling in from the Gainesville Police Department’s new fans. In fact, people have been so enthusiastic online that the department is now providing updates!
The photo was posted by the Gainesville Police Department on September 10, and instantly became an online sensation, with 445,000 reactions online, 248,000 shares, and 160,000 swooning comments.
Officers Nordman, Hamill, and Rengering had no idea their night crew photo was going to be such a hit.
The department originally shared a simple caption, reading, “Officers Nordman, Hamill and Rengering… part of the night crew getting ready to do some work.”
However, after the post became a hit on social media, they had to add a few additional notes.
The update reads:
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.
Some other police departments decided to get in on the fun in the comments section and share their own smokin’-hot first responders.
Sarasota posted a picture with the caption, “ATTENTION LADIES! Sarasota Police Department sent backup to this post.”
Ladies did pay attention, and plenty of them are planning to break some Florida laws.
One user writes:
Goodness gracious. I’m on my way to Florida to break some laws y’all. They don’t make em like that round here. What Academy are they coming out of. I’m going to recommend it to our local police department.
And that’s not all. The Gainesville Police Department has even more talent, posting more pictures of their good-looking team saving the day.

More users chime in with witty comments:
NEW UPDATE: Hampering Recovery Efforts from Irma, A rash of petty crimes committed by women from around the world who are flocking the Gainesville area!!
And the comments keep coming:
Based on all these pictures I’m assuming the first question on the Gainsville Police Department job application is: Are you really, really rediculously good looking?
Please send me Detective Jones’ full name and badge number? I need to report him for violating me (in my dreams)!!!!
Luckily, the online humor is helping to give some Irma victims some overdue laughs, too:
Some of the officers have even added photos showcasing their domestic talents, like this officer at the grill.
Gainesville promised us a calendar to benefit Irma victims, and I think women around the country can agree: We would be more than willing to pay up!
And, of course, let’s not forget one of the most handsome gentlemen on the force. This looker is a K-9 officer on duty!
