Police in the Goldfields haven’t let working over the festive period dampen their spirits.
Officers at Laverton Police have shared a video of an officer showing off their dance moves at the station’s Christmas dinner function.
Constable Colin Todd was working that day but came back to have some food on his break and decided to entertain his colleagues with a dance.
The officer stood still for a couple of seconds before the beat dropped. His moves left his fellow officers cheering and laughing.
“We took it as a bit of a laugh,” Senior Sergeant Justin Tarasinski said.
“We have to find our own entertainment out here.”
Laverton is a remote town 950 km north-east of Perth.
Police posted the footage on Twitter on New Year’s Day to let the kids of the remote Goldfields town know about an upcoming blue light disco, but instead it has made Constable Todd an internet sensation.
The footage has received hundreds of likes on Facebook and Twitter, with comments both praising and teasing Const. Todd.
“People like to see police in a positive light every now and then,” Snr Sgt Tarasinski said.
Laverton police said they never expected so many people to start talking about the video, but have laid down the challenge for the kids of Laverton to show off their best moves.
