With the overwhelming amount of attention, the police department was forced to provide an update:

UPDATE:
1. We are dying with the comments. You’ve actually made our chief blush with some of them.
2. MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands.
3. We can confirm that Officer Rengering (far right with the amazing hair) IS SINGLE.
4. On another note, Officer Rengering is being placed into Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program for his safety.
5. Please do not call 9-1-1 and request this group respond to your “incident”
6. There WILL be a calendar.

Thank you all for the hilarious comments…they have brightened our time up here. As for the calendar, we are going to try and do something fairly quickly and funds raised will go to Hurricane Irma recovery here in Florida.

Jamie Lee Daniels replied to the update, saying:

The hunkapotumus is a rare, elusive and mythical creature. Here we are lucky to see 3 huddled together in the wake of hurricane Irma. I’m a well trained hunkapotumus handler. Send them my way and they will be well taken care of.

Seriously though…😂😂😂

**Update** I’m single and on the lookout for a good man. Holler at your girl Officer Rengering! Lol

It’s not clear at this time if the Gainesville calendars will only feature these officers or if it will include non-hunkapotumus officers as well.
