IT was the tweet that sent Guardia Civil’s Twitter into meltdown in April.
Aunque por fuera nos veas vestidos de uniforme por dentro no somos diferentes a ti
Trabajamos por tu libertad y seguridad

Jorge Perez Diez – who has since begun a modelling career – found nation-wide fame after a viral tweet sparked a manhunt among Spain’s media and populace.
But the once-dubbed ‘hottest policeman in Spain’ has some stiff competition.
It comes after the police force tweeted a picture of an new officer, who is ‘always loyal to his duties’ and is ‘calm in the face of danger’.
Siempre fiel a su deber, sereno en el peligro, y desempeñando sus funciones con dignidad, prudencia y firmeza, será más respetado que el que con amenazas solo consigue malquistarse con todos

The tweet has been shared hundreds of times and received over a thousand likes in just a matter of hours.
Admirers took to social media to lay praise on the handsome law enforcer.
A dónde hay que ir para que este señor me ponga una multa?????

One woman wrote: “Where do I need to go for this man to fine me?”

Another man joked: “My wife is here saying she wants to take the car and speed down the motorway at over 140kmh to see if she gets pulled over by this officer.
“Please can you tell me where he patrols so I can tell her? Mostly so I can sleep peacefully tonight.”
The officer has yet to be identified.
