Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The folks at the Denver Police Facebook page have clearly been looking forward to Valentine's Day. Over the past week, page administrators have shared a series of e-cards they encourage friends to send to law enforcers as a way of showing how much they love the work they do. We admit to being a little mystified by the one above. If an officer's unlocking the cuffs of a criminal, isn't he abetting an escape? And if the person in cuffs isn't a scofflaw, what kind of kinky stuff are these cops into? Fortunately, the four additional cards shared here make a little more sense, even if they're equally weird -- and the last one's absolutely hilarious. Check them out below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
