What do the men and women of the Atlanta Police Department do when they're not patrolling the streets of the city, keeping residents safe from criminals?

They make YouTube videos rocking out to popular songs!

On July 1, the department posted a YouTube video featuring several members of the force, sworn and unsworn, dancing along to Pharrell Williams' hit song "Happy."

The dancing parade includes mounted officers, helicopters, motorcycle police, and 911 operators.

Even Chief George N. Turner gets involved in the fun, despite rebuffing public affairs Officer Kim Jones' requests to dance in the beginning of the video.

What do you think of the Atlanta Police Department's "Happy" YouTube video? Tell us in the comments!

I thought it was GREAT! So "happy" (ugh, I know!) to see another side of APD, and to see so many of them jump right in, for better or for, well… less better? This is a wonderful community outreach, good for APD. My teenagers were even impressed!

They are in no shape to run after someone. Being q couple of pounds overweight is okay but obese....they wouldn't be able to jog for a city block let alone jump a fence.

Those were a bunch of happy lard asses bouncing around!! I loved it and danced in my chair with them... Obesity runs in the police departments every where it seems as well as the hospitals and doctors offices. Not a healthy but a happy bunch!! Pass the Krispy Kremes please!! lol!!
