Who says cops don't have a sense of humor?

Update: I found out this was when we first switched to digital in-car cameras from our analog system (January 2009). Our Patrol Video Unit had encouraged officers to play around with the new technology to familiarize themselves with it. This officer took those instructions to heart.

All of our patrol officers have in-car digital video cameras. We ask all of them to check those cameras at the beginning of each of their shifts to ensure they're functioning properly. At the end of their shifts, officers download all the video that was recorded onto a central server so it can be reviewed, if necessary. We found this little ditty last year and are now using it as a reminder to all officers to check their cameras at shift's start. I'm not entirely sure this officer was aware the camera was recording at the time, but he's got some interesting moves!
