In most places, the police force has a difficult relationship with the people they’re tasked to protect, but not so much in the capital of Iceland. The Reykjavík police department had its first shooting death EVER in 2013. An armed man came at two police officers and they had to drop him like a bad habit, but since then and in all of history before that, they didn’t have to use deadly force at all.
While Instagram might not be the absolute best way to judge how the police is seen by the public and how well they get along with everybody in town, an Instagram page filled with kittens, puppies, hilarity and ice cream is a pretty damn good sign! Enjoy the images and let us know how awesome you think these cops in Reykjavík are.

Would police officers where you live post stuff like this on Instagram?!
