Just north of the Colorado border lies Cheyenne, Wyoming.
And, while it’s worth visiting for an assortment of cowboy bars, the Wyoming State Capitol and all sorts of fun activities, you can get a taste of our northern neighbor thanks to the their police department’s A+ Facebook page.
In addition to posting the usual crime updates, the Cheyenne Police Department has an awesome sense of humor, and it’s high time they get the recognition they deserve.
Case in point? Their latest post. Police departments all over the place post surveillance photos and ask for help finding suspects. That’s not really news. A lot of the time, the photos are laughably bad. That’s also not really news.
The Cheyenne Police Department took this to the next level by actually acknowledging it in a post about a man who hit a clerk at a Kum N Go.
“… yes, we do realize that the photo was taken with a potato, no need to point that out,” the post reads.

Like other police departments, the folks in Cheyenne have an elf on the shelf. Is this kind of thing overdone? That’s up for debate, but you’ve got to admit … once again, they’re legitimately funny.
This one involves the smarties reference you probably made at one point as a rebellious teen.

They also gave their elf on the shelf a gun (no, it’s not real), which is also pretty funny.

“It probably helps if you can talk.”

They also shared an A+ photo of a police dog just lounging on the furniture, because he’s a good boy!

This post involves a guy who stole a bunch of Jack Daniels and then took off in a four-wheeler. Cheyenne Police were pretty straight-forward here, but this is just very Wyoming.

“Just a friendly reminder from your Cheyenne Police Department that yes, it is illegal to drive while under the influence of heroin …”
Another gem in this post? “Don’t do drugs. Especially don’t do drugs and drive. Really really really don’t do drugs, drive and crash into a fence.”

Cheyenne Police were also ready for alien abductions during the eclipse.

And finally, the best post about an air conditioning heist, simply for the line “he may not be sweaty anymore as he now has an air conditioner.”

Never change, Cheyenne Police. Never change.
