Arlington County police swimming video

Virginia police made a synchronized swimming video


Police in Arlington, Virginia made a synchronized swimming video to promote an upcoming block party, according to our affiliate WJLA.

The Arlington County Police Department posted the clip promoting this Saturday’s Police, Fire and Sheriff Block Party on their Facebook page Thursday.

The spot’s highlights begin when one male officer shouts “we’re going to the pool” performing a running cannonball into a swimming pool.

Five male officers then shed their police gear before putting on swim caps, floaties and more before entering the water themselves.

The group then performs a synchronized swimming routine to classical music, which includes diving, twirling and one officer even being launched into the air by the others.

Facebook users on Thursday praised the light-hearted spot for showing Arlington County’s law enforcement officers enjoying their summer.

One person wrote that the video was “hilarious” and that they would “love to meet these superstars” in person.

Another user called the clip “great,” adding that it was “better than the Olympics” with five exclamation marks.

A third commentator told the police department that they “all rock” and that they have the local community’s “love.”

WJLA reported that the block party the Arlington County police were promoting will take place this Saturday at Kenmore Middle School in Arlington.

The event is reportedly free, family-friendly and runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with food, drinks and games for all ages.
