GULF SHORES, Ala. — A seven-second video featuring a K-9 doing pushups in sync with two police officers has gone viral.

AL.com reports that two-year-old K-9 Nitro, who joined the Gulf Shores PD in February, joined Officers William Cowan and Ben Hancock as they did push-ups. The video has gained more than 60,000 views since it was posted on Saturday.

The video was made to promote an anti-theft campaign called the “9 p.m. routine” - reminding  people to remove their valuables from their cars at night to prevent theft. The campaign was started by the Paso County, Florida, Sheriff’s Department and has reportedly reduced the number of thefts there.

 

It’s 9:00 PM #GulfShores! Go ahead and follow the #9PMRoutine. 🔐🚪🏡🚘🚗✅ K9 Nitro, Officer Cowan and Officer Hancock are getting warmed up and ready to apprehend any bad guys that break the law!
