(Un)policed smiles.

The law wasn’t broken here, but a rule was.

A shallow depth of field was used to unconventionally blur the foreground figure (policewoman).  It’s an unconventional choice because your mind normally expects the most foreground elements to be in focus.  Violating this “rule” can prove for a distracting image, but I believe it works here because of the particular composition and because the two officers are mirroring each other with their expressions.
