Zurich police have launched a world-wide trend. 

ZH Pol Zurich police start global trend

The cantonal force released a picture on its Facebook page showing all the equipment carried by an average police car laid out on the ground, including the two officers.

Emergency forces right around the world are now doing the same – including ambulance firms in the US and fire brigades in China.

It’s been termed the ‘Tetris Challenge’.

Rebecca Tilen from the Zurich cantonal police says they’re amazed at how it’s become so popular and more pictures are added online every day.

It was Rebecca’s idea for the picture as part of a display during the force’s open day.
