Video of fun-loving Copenhagen cops goes worldwide

Police car used as a slide creating smiles everywhere

A video of local police in Copenhagen letting kids use their car bonnet as a slide to jump into the sea is creating smiles worldwide.

“Time to pack your bags and head to Denmark, because they have the official title of the world’s most fun police force,” said one website showing the video.

Police spokesperson Thomas Kristensen said that there was no problem with the officers helping the youngsters to have a bit of fun in the city district of Amager.

“Police officers are ordinary people, and if it helps them have a good relationship with the kids, it’s all good,” Kristensen told DR Nyheder.
