The so-called Tetris Challenge started September 1 when Zurich police published this bird's eye image on social media. It captured two officers on the ground beside the contents of their car laid out in neat, geometric block patterns, like in the popular 1980s video game Tetris. Since then, public services units from around the world have followed suit, photographing their work equipment in rows beside their vehicles. Click through to see more. Kantonspolizei Zürich
