A Facebook selfie snapped Sunday featuring members of the Gainesville, Florida Police Department drew quite a response from admirers across the United States.

The police department took the comments in good humor, responding with GIFs to many of them.

"4. On another note, Officer Rengering is being placed into Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety", it read, as well as discouraging people from calling 911 in order to get a glimpse of the officers.

One Facebook user wrote: "I feel safer just looking at this picture".

The post was nearly immediately flooded with comments from interested ladies. "I can't remember where I was going with this.", one comment read.

"This pic is exactly why your grandmother always told you to wear clean underwear in case you're in an accident", said Heather Groom.

"UPDATE: 1. We are dying with the comments".

The officers added a few updates to their original caption in response to the comments, saying they plan to make a calendar to raise funds for hurricane recovery in Florida. The department also posted photos of some more officers that have also been flooded with squeal-laden comments.

The update also says Officers Nordman and Hamill were already married, and that both of their wives are enjoying how many people are going insane over their husbands. Officer Rengering, described as the one "with the wonderful hair", is single, but the department jokes he's being placed into "Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety". They also say there will be a calendar.

The popularity caught the attention of the Sarasota Police Department, which posted a photo of their own officers on Tuesday, which was shared by the Gainesville police on Facebook. "I 3 GPD", says another.
