KPIX reports that Chris Kohrs, the “Hot Cop” in San Francisco’s Castro District, is now the focus of a Facebook page with more than 30,000 followers. A snapshot of Kohrs posted online was shared repeatedly, triggering a fan to create a Facebook page titled “Officer Chris Kohrs, aka Hot Cop Of Castro.” Kohrs had been a biotechnician at Genentech before joining the police force. He attended UCLA.
When Kohrs posted online that he was going to be interviewed by KPIX, a huge crowd showed up.
Kohrs, amused by the hoopla, said, “It just makes me happy that I can, to them, be approachable, because that’s kind of what a police officer’s job is. This is all new to me. I’m not used to this, but I’m having fun with it. I’ll just go with it.”
Asked about the convict from Stockton, Jeremy Meeks, who has become a hot item on social media, Kohrs commented, “I think he’s a great looking guy. But I think he would look a lot better outside of the color orange.”
KPIX took the time to report that Mohrs is single and straight.
