The singing police officer is Chris Reza, a member of the LAPD police force. Reza’s Twitter banner proudly states that his duty is “to protect and to serve! and occasionally sing!” Reza was one of many police officers and sheriff’s deputies who attended the 27th annual Mariachi Festival at Mariachi Plaza in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights. Mariachi Plaza, a place where people can hire mariachis and other musicians for parties, is a popular community gathering spot. Reza took to Instagram to share his excitement about being part of the festivities with his fellow law enforcement peers.
“Great event and a great time,” Reza wrote on Instagram. “Many thanks to my mariachi/law enforcement brothers and sisters for having the heart and vision to see this through mariachi Los Servidores.”
Several people replied to the tweet to express how impressed they were.
OMG! They were awesome! That’s one of my favorite songs!! I want to hear more! I would hire them for my Birthday Party next year!??? pic.twitter.com/nyxMraYWdy

Music does have a way of getting people moving regardless of who sings it, tbh

Law enforcement was holding this performance down from the guitars in the background to the lead singer.
But mainly people were just happy to see their neighborhood represented.
Cuz Boyle Heights fam

And they might have a career in music if this whole law enforcement thing doesn’t work out.
Where can we book them? ?
