Cop returns to job after being told to choose between police work and modeling

After being dubbed "Germany's most beautiful model", Adrienne Koleszar was thriving on Instagram with more than 600,000 followers watching her every move.

However, the 34-year-old also had another rather important duty: her career as a police officer.

When her bosses ordered her to choose between the two, the question was: which would she stick with?

In a recent Youtube video, uploaded on New Year's Day, the successful model revealed that she had made her final decision and would be remaining with law enforcement.

It had been a tough decision for the Instagram star, made after police bosses - allegedly became unhappy with her frequent bikini snaps on social media - and sat her down to tell her to choose.

After a six-month sabbatical, in which she travelled around Miami, New York, Dubai, Amsterdam and Cape Town, she finally announced her decision to stay in the police force, claiming she was looking forward to being back patrolling the streets in Dresden, Saxony.

"I'm going to work. I'm going back on the beat, I'm putting my uniform on," she told the camera. "I'm looking forward to January, even though I know it'll be a very difficult month. I don't have to give anything up. I'll still be on Instagram on social media - of course not as much as in the last six months but I'll still be just as present as I was before July 1."

Speaking about returning to the force after her half a year of unpaid leave, the 34-year-old continued: "Of course I had to consider whether I would go back on January 1 and whether I wanted to. That's a decision I had to make for myself, because it's no secret that the half-year was a time when I thought about where I'm going. Am I happy with what I'm doing at the moment? Am I unhappy and do I need to change anything? It wasn't really any more than that."

Being both a police officer and an Instagram star came with its issues: namely that fans began to recognise Adrienne on the streets.

She explained: "I've never been treated without respect because I'm the Adrienne you can see on the Internet. I have no fear about returning to my duty, being on patrol and working my shifts. I'm convinced it won't hinder my work."

Fans congratulated the young officer on returning to the force, with one writing: "I'm glad you're going back to patrol. If all goes well, I'll start studying with the police this year. Keep your fingers crossed, I'll do it for you".

Another added: "I'm very happy that you want to stay a policewoman! The most beautiful profession in the world, as hard as it sometimes is".

According to a report from the New York Post, the state of Saxony is looking to hire 1,000 new cops, and police chiefs need Koleszar focused on her job due to personnel shortages.
