Police officers 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 filled with police humor compiled by Bored Panda, you will see that they most certainly do. From funny jokes about the donut-based stereotypes to ingeniously creative and funny social media ‘warnings,’ scroll down below to see the ultimate examples of police jokes. Don’t forget to upvote your favorites too!
