It's never not nice to see beat cops participating in moments of neighborly merriment, taking a break from their duties as gruff Enforcers of Order to have fun with the communities they're charged with protecting.

The above video shows Officer James Ferrazzo of the 79th Precinct dancing the Nae Nae at a neighborhood block party in Bed-Stuy last weekend. Since it was uploaded, the video has been viewed more than 207,000 times. While that's not much compared with the 7 million views garnered by this video of a cop getting down at the Gay Pride parade following the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, it's nice to periodically remember that cops are people who like to dance, too.

Could the sudden increase of Dancing Cops be the effect of de Blasio's recent push for better more personal policing? In June, the mayor announced that his office had committed $100 million for the purpose of hiring 1,300 more officers, the goal being to ease the burden of responding to calls and give officers the opportunity to get to know the people on their beat.

That being said, let's stick with PG-rated group dances like the Cupid Shuffle, and leave the daggering out.
