Cops get it pretty tough these days. Negative stories about a few bad apples in the police force hog the headlines, while the small, everyday heroic acts that officers undertake to keep us safe are often taken for granted. Sometimes we forget what a tough and dangerous job they have, and at the end of the day, they are normal people too!

So to keep spirits up, police have to have a pretty good sense of humor. And if you check out this list compiled by Bored Panda, you will see that they most certainly do. From poking fun at their donut-based stereotypes, to ingeniously creative and funny social media ‘warnings,’ scroll down below to see the ultimate examples of good cop. Don’t forget to upvote your favorites too!
