Need a laugh? Check out the official Instagram account of the Reykjavík metropolitan police (Reykjavík is the largest and capital city of Iceland). It’s a strangely humorous account that’s filled with silly snapshots showing that the officers know how to have a good time while busting criminals and keeping their city streets safe.

The photos have attracted quite a bit of attention from fans around the world, as the Instagram account has managed to gain over 140,000 followers so far. Here are some of the photographs posted by the department, along with the original (and often hilarious) captions:
