Watch: New Zealand police recruitment video is the best thing you'll see today

A recruitment video featuring real police officers has gone viral in New Zealand.

The video, shared on Saturday evening, shows officers “on the job”. As they chase down stolen items through gardens, vans and alleyways, they explain what the force is looking for in new recruits.

Over 70 officers took part in the film, including the police band, divers, helicopter crew and even a K9 officer, making for pretty amusing viewing.

Even the Police Commissioner, Mike Bush, takes part in the video, as well as one of the force’s newest recruits, Zion Leaupepe.

The amusing video was aimed at encouraging younger people from a range of backgrounds to join the force in order to “better reflect the communities we serve”.

Like the best movies, they even have a bloopers reel, showing officers forgetting their lines and looking into the wrong camera.

The video has been shared over 14,000 times on Facebook, garnering 835,000 views.
