Mumbai police’s social media campaigns have impressed many in the recent past. After ‘Stranger Things’ and ‘F.R.I.E.N.D.S’ references, Mumbai police is now spreading important messages with adorable photos of babies. With hashtag #ChildrenKnowItTheBest, they are celebrating the Children’s Day week with hilarious baby memes, not just spreading smiles but also making sure their message is catered to the citizens.
Perhaps, impressed by children’s innocence and their pure intention to teach a lesson to those who involve themselves in wrongdoings, the cops are also using #BachchePoliceBulayenge to let elders know how embarrassing it is to be corrected by children.
From memes on jumping the red light to cybersecurity, these have left everyone in splits.

Apart from memes, they collaborated with Cartoon Network to launch the campaign with two cute videos.

While many liked the initiative, others came up with suggestion about things that should be included. Here’s what Tweeple had to say about the new campaign:
