PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Maine police officer’s rendition of “O Holy Night” is winning accolades online.

Portland Police Officer Jeremy Turner was a music major at the University of Southern Maine before walking a beat. He recently 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 says he burst into song on Saturday on a dare by a fellow officer.

Portland Police Chief Michael Sauschuck approves of the singing officer. He says the video’s popularity serves to “humanize” law enforcement officers.
