A police department in Florida received thousands of messages and comments from women around the area after the department posted a photo of three officers preparing to help victims of Hurricane Irma.

The officers, though, weren't being contacted for their good deeds but rather for their good looks, according to People. Hundreds of women inundated the Gainesville Police Department's Facebook page with questions about the officers' relationship statuses and whether they could call 911 just to "see."

"Y’all should do a calendar, where you’re half dressed, for charity,” offered one curious commenter.

"I’m Charity and I approve this message," chimed another.

"I can't believe how many women are objectifying these poor, fine, young, strong, handsome, brave, sexy, delicious, virile, ovulation-inducing, mouth-watering, beefy… I can't remember where I was going with this," wrote a third viewer.

Others openly wondered if a 911 call would send the officers in question rushing to their front door. Of course, the Gainesville police officers quickly and firmly discouraged this behavior, even though they were flattered by all the attention.

The department posted an update to the original photo, informing some the women interested of some crucial details.

"We are dying with the comments," read the update. "You've actually made our chief blush with some of them."

"MRS. Nordman and MRS. Hamill have also enjoyed knowing how millions of women are going crazy over their husbands," the department clarified, likely to the chagrin of hundreds of admirers. Not all was lost, though: "We can confirm that Officer Rengering (far right with the amazing hair) IS SINGLE."

The department joked that Rengering was being placed into "Cougar Prey Protective Care, similar to the witness protection program."

The department also confirmed that there will, in fact, be a calendar put together with pictures of Gainesville's finest, with proceeds from sales going to help support rebuilding efforts in Florida after the devastation of Hurricane Irma.

The photo drew interest from all over the country but particularly in Texas and Florida, helping to distract many from the difficulties in rebuilding that lay ahead, according to the Washington Post.

"These comments are cracking me up," wrote a hurricane victim. "Need some good laughter after being evacuated for almost a week."

"These comments have honestly made me really laugh for the first time since Irma hit us (in Orlando)," shared another. "Thank you to all the funny ladies on here."
