Often criticized in the media and hated on by many citizens, cops have started to take "selfies" and begun posting them onto the CopSelfies Tumblr where it is hoped that these pictures of police officers can serve to humanize today's law enforcement.

Cracking smiles and writing witty captions like "bulletproof meter maid," the images really do make the intimidating officers seem much more down to earth, presenting them as human beings who are just like the rest of us rather than insentient robots. Each image gains thousands of notes, signalling the appreciation people have towards this project.

Of course, there is something to be said for pictures of police wearing sunglasses, holding their guns and looking super cool in their uniforms.
