In the video above, a whole bunch of Atlanta PD do Pharrell Williams’ HAPPY demonstrating that at least in Atlanta, Cops can be “people “ too. I think this is a good thing as it not only gave Police Personnel an opportunity to enjoy each others presence and gave the community a topic to discuss with Police on the street. Folks do not realize how tense a Police Department can become and how just doing police work with the same people day in and day out can effect people. Anything that brings a smile or a laugh shared between staff is often a good thing.
This also gave to the community, allowing them to see Police as people too and giving them a reason to talk with police. Many a citizen would like to shoot the breeze with their local cop, but lacking a topic choose not to. I will bet a whole bunch of talking is going on in Atlanta today . . .
GOOD JOB ATLANTA P.D.
