Columbus police officer Anthony Johnson is harnessing the power of TikTok to destigmatize law enforcement. The "normal dude that happens to be a cop" has officially made the transformation to a "dancing cop." Officer A.J. is paving the way for the popo everywhere through his positive interactions, heart-to-heart moments, goofy antics and dance offs with local kids in his community. His account initially launched in May of 2019, quickly cultivating 10M+ likes and 860K+ followers in just a few short months. AJ is quickly becoming a global role model, calling upon the community in advocacy of education, using minds not weapons and fostering collective togetherness.
