Iowa police engaged in a spring outreach campaign using one of the police officer’s mostly stereotyped staple foods as a punny prop.
“Spring is always a time about new beginnings,” said Eric Snyder, community resource officer at the Ames Police Department. “The message this year is respect.”
Snyder and Iowa State University Police Department Officer Anthony Greiter sat at a table in their newest video, talking about the importance of respect- albeit rife with doughnut puns.
“Watch social media for events as they pop up the rest of the month to get free doughnuts from the police,” Greiter said with a mouthful of doughnut
“All we ask is that you donut disrespect, donut discriminate, donut harass and donut hate,” Snyder added.
The video has generated hundreds of comments and has proven rather popular.
According to The Des Moines Register, the two officers are promoting a campaign that allows people to get free doughnuts from the police.
The Ames police has refitted the livery of one of their police cruisers -dubbed the Doughnutmobile- in order to get the campaign rolling.
“I want it to be well-received, but I’m more blown away about by how popular it’s been,” Snyder said. “We’re really trying to spread a message that makes our community better.”
