Watch: NZ Police release hilarious new recruitment video

New Zealand Police have released their latest recruitment video - starring our very own Kiwi police officers.

The video, which has just gone live on the New Zealand Police Facebook page, is a fast-paced clip with quick-fire questions and answers in a news report style.

There are some special guest appearances too, including Wellington Paranormal's Minogue and O'Leary, Oscar Kightley and comedian David Correos.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush says police need to attract more staff, particularly more women, Māori, Pacific Islanders and Asians.

"A common thing we hear from people considering joining police is that they have a lot of questions and they want to put these to some of our staff," he says.

"The 'breaking news' video features our officers answering the questions people most commonly ask of us before joining up - but in a fun, creative and accessible way."

Kaye Ryan, NZ Police's deputy chief executive of people and capability, hopes the video will dispel some of the myths about police recruitment.

"We want to recruit New Zealanders with a variety of backgrounds," she says.

"There are more than 30 different career paths as an officer in the New Zealand Police, and we invest time in training our staff so they have the skills to face any situation."
