Spanish Police Surprise : As millions of people around the world adjust to life in isolation as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, police in Spain are doing their best to raise spirits.
Heartwarming footage shared on social media shows police officers singing and dancing in the streets, providing music and positive vibes as surprised residents looked on from their houses.
As the officers danced in the streets of Majorca, homeowners soon joined in with the singing, clapping along and waving from the balconies.
You can watch the incredible moment below:
The video shows two police cars driving down the residential street, sirens blazing, before a group of officers exit their vehicles and one shouts: ‘We’ve come to sing!’
The officer then, complete with a guitar and microphone, proceeds to sing Joan Petit – a common Catalan children’s song – to the neighbourhood while the other four officers clap and dance along with the residents.
According to local reports, the police department plan to continue singing to residents in the Pina and Randa areas today, March 22, between 3pm and 7pm as advertised on their social media platforms. One of the officers is part of a singing group.
Some will also face a prison sentence from three months to one year, depending on the severity of their behaviour and how much it’s perceived to impact public health.
Our thoughts are with all those affected by coronavirus and the families of those who have lost their lives.
