A Facebook post made by the West Liberty, IA Police Department has gone viral.

A photo of Officer Pamela Romero was added to Facebook asking for users to share the photo and comment their location to show West Liberty students how fast something can spread on social media.

"We want them to understand once they hit enter or send there is no way to get something back," the post said.

So far, the post has revived nearly 30 thousand shares and six-thousand "likes" or reactions.
