MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WMBF) – One social media post shows that police officers have a sense of humor too.

The city of Myrtle Beach posted a picture of a Myrtle Beach police recruiting car, but tells people to take a close look at the plate holder.

It says, “Smile, I could be behind you,” meaning that drivers should be happy the police cruiser is in front of you and not behind you with flashing lights.

The social media post has more than 1,000 reactions and over 850 shares.

The license plate frame is only used for the department’s recruiting car, according to Myrtle Beach Police Cpl. Thomas Vest.

“Hopefully it makes people laugh and gets candidates and the public to come talk to us,” Vest said.
