Philadelphia police officers are working the parade route primarily to help keep everyone safe, of course. But that doesn’t mean they can’t get in on the party, too.
Some were seen waving Eagles flags outside Citizens Bank Park.
This is awesome. Police waving flags from fans in the crowd as the Rocky theme plays just across from CBP & the Linc. Not sure anything is more Philly than this. #EaglesSuperBowlParade pic.twitter.com/KCT8elCMMv

This officer took a selfie and proclaimed, “We love the Birds. Go Birds!”
Cops are fired up about the Eagles, too. pic.twitter.com/e6UJZe04M7

Outside the Linc, some officers led Eagles chants.

Parade-goers have been thanking officers and being pretty friendly. It’s a happy day, after all.
Outside on Broad and Walnut, people shaking hands with cops. One guy just handed an officer a fresh cup of coffee. Philly.
