The Upper Darby Police Facebook Page Has Won the Internet

Social media done right.

upper darby police

Over the weekend, Philadelphia comic great Chip Chantry sent me a link for the Upper Darby Police Facebook page. Being that the link was coming from a master of parody (as demonstrated by Chantry’s genius Hall & Oates Christmas video) and that the content didn’t seem to be what you’d expect coming out through official police channels, I thought it was a joke. But it’s not. It’s real. And it’s gold.

Below, some of the bests status updates from the Upper Darby Police Facebook page. (And yes, they also use the page to help track down bad guys, offer safety advice and locate missing pets.)

(If you aren’t seing the status updates, log into Facebook and then refresh this page.)

    They’re obviously jumping on the Brimfield Police Department bandwagon … https://www.facebook.com/BrimfieldPolice

      Denise-this is our own creation. I’m sure Brimfield PD does a nice job but we don’t need to jump on a bandwagon. Everything you read on our page is original work that we feel is quite unique. Best of luck to that agency however on their fine work. UD Police.
