PORTLAND, Maine — A Maine police officer’s rendition of “O Holy Night” is winning accolades online.
Police Officer Jeremy Turner was a music major at the University of Southern Maine before walking the beat. And he decided to put his voice to use to spread Yuletide cheer in a city park.
The video posted on Facebook has been shared several thousand times.
Turner said he burst out in song on Saturday on a dare by a fellow officer.
Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck approves of the singing officer. He said the video’s popularity serves to “humanize” law enforcement officers.
