The department says Mrs. Nordman and Mrs. Hamill are enjoying the comments and knowing that millions of women are going insane over their husbands. And "MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going insane over their husbands". Officer Rengering, described as the one "with the awesome 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".

But that wasn't the end of it.

"Officers Nordman, Hamill and Rengering...part of the night crew getting ready to do some work", read the post, which was subsequently inundated with 170,000 reactions, 118,000 shares, and 74,000 comments on the men's appearance. A photo of K-9 Officer Maverick led one fan to say, "Dang!" Police said plans for a calendar are now in the works. Since being posted on September 11, the picture has collected over 3.3 lakh reactions, nearly two lakh shares and more than 1.2 lakh comments - and still very much counting.

The department issued an update asking people not to call 911 to "request this group respond to your 'incident'".

It soon went viral with comments including, "That moment when you don't care about getting the ticket because one of them is talking to you for 20 mins".

Not long after that, the Sarasota Police Department sent backup.

The department later made an update to the post, sharing some good and bad news - the bad news being only ONE out of the three officers is single, but the good news is that a calendar will be coming shortly!

"Officers Raulerson, Craig, Gloeckner & Hughes responded to help our friends at the North Port Police Department & North Port Fire Department this afternoon with rescues due to rising floodwaters from Hurricane Irma".

The popularity of Gainesville Police's hunks did not go unnoticed by other law enforcement departments in Florida.
