A Chinese cop has started what the People's Daily is calling the country's first police blog.
The blog features a cheese-pop soundtrack of 'The Song of the People's Police', a gallery of police babes that allows you to vote for the hottest female cop, photos of police officers training, heartwarming tales of good deeds by police officers, and special warnings to citizens -- the current threat is bag snatching and pickpocketing, crimes that apparently always increase in the summer.
The image reproduced here is from the police blog's babe gallery. It shows Zhang Li, who is the 'image representative' of the Hebei Province police.
Xinhua has more information about the blog:
