The NZ police have a well-earned reputation for making awesome and funny videos and they've done it again - this week turning out a police recruitment video filled with laugh-out-loud moments.
The action-packed two-and-a-half minute video which NZ Police have pitched on their Facebook page as Freeze! NZ's Police's Most Entertaining Recruitment Video Yet features a range of fit-looking police officers running through a sequence of comedic scenarios.
It showcases the wide range of areas you can work in when you're part of the force - from the Armed Offenders Squad to the dive and dog squads, Eagle helicopter and youth aid officers and frontline work.
Black Ferns captain and policewoman Fiao'o Faamausili and Sergeant Sonny Iosefo, who hit headlines with his dance moves in the police running man challenge, are among the diverse cast. The Auckland Police pipe band also makes an appearance.
Word on the street is that 70 staff members, including Police Commissioner Mike Bush, put their hands up to star in the video, which was launched on the NZ Police facebook page and has already been shared more than 20,000 times. It will be rolled out on TV and in cinemas.
Bush told the NZ Herald, "New Zealand Police are striving to increase our overall staff numbers over the next three years to meet our objective of being the safest country, and to deliver on the Government's signalled staffing increase.
"Police want to attract more women, Māori, Pacific Islanders, and people from all other ethnicities and backgrounds to better reflect the communities we serve. We also need recruits who are happy to be based in the Auckland area."
With a starting salary of over $55,000, over 30 areas that you can work in and getting paid to train, it sounds like a pretty good gig to us.
