New Zealand police have revealed their hidden talents again - this time with an electric guitar.

A video has been posted on Facebook of a Wellington policeman playing a busker's guitar on Courtenay Place.

The unnamed officer plays a few riffs to onlooking police and a small crowd, who cheer loudly at his efforts.

New Zealand police recruitment staff shared the video with the caption, "Some slick playing from one of our Wellington officers".


At last count, it had been viewed more than 55,000 times.

It comes after the police caused a social media sensation by sharing a video of staff doing a "running man" dance routine.

That video has now been viewed more than nine million times and has prompted overseas police forces and others to respond with their own routines.
