Police in India by and large don't have the best reputation, they are viewed as corrupt and at best - useless. But one police department is making an effort to rehab their image with the number one weapon of the internet - memes. The Bengaluru City Police teamed up young social media entrepreneurs Chethan Hiremath and Deeraj Gowda in an effort to reach out to millennials in their language of choice, hilarious graphics.

“We try to inculcate that meme with a message; that’s how the Game of Thrones and Pablo Escobar memes came about. We blended humour with social messages, without diluting the image that the Bengaluru Police has. Whatever content they have, we find a creative way to put it across," Deeraj told The Times of India.

The savvy social media approach appears to be working, Police commissioner Praveen Sood informed the outlet that, "The response to new tweets has been good. We are adding at least 1,000 followers on a daily basis." Scroll down below to check out some of the best content from the Bengaluru City Police Instagram page and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Studies show that the worsening air quality in Bengaluru could escalate crime rates.“Studies have shown that suspended particulate matter (SPM) of 2.5u, which is 3% the size of a hair, and composed primarily of sulphates, nitrates, ammonia, sodium chloride and black carbon, affects the endocrine system, impairing judgment, increasing the possibility of violence,” said Professor Dr H Paramesh, a pulmonologist and environmental scientist at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).

It's not the motorbike that kills you. It's the sudden stop when a car cuts you off.

That dog is not safe. Dogs need a harness and tether point to be safe in a vehicle. No one wants to see their doggo get squished.

False. You can have a couple of few beers at the pub and not be over the legal limit. Wanna drink a few more, you're busted.
