It’s no secret that police are logging onto MySpace to dig up incriminating information for criminal investigations. But who would’ve thought that cops are actually getting ON MySpace? Check out the official social networking page for the Denver Police Department that was registered last December. It not only has a snazzy background and a video of overweight cops jumping over chain-link fences, but friends of the DPD include police outfits from around the country. Thx for the add. Last night’s drug raid was totally sweet, LOL! – Jared Jacang Maher
