(SERIOUS, DRAMATIC MUSIC) (INDISTINCT CHATTER) And that’s why New Zealand Police
are looking for more recruits. – Does anyone have any questions?
– (REPORTERS CLAMOUR) – What kind of people are you after?
– Everyone. We need a diverse mix of recruits
that reflect Aotearoa. Excuse me! To become a cop, do you need
a full drivers licence? Uh, yeah. Oh. Fair enough. (MOTOR STARTS, WHIRRS) (DOGS BARK) I wonder if I can have tattoos. Absolutely. But ones on your hands
and face will have to be assessed. What about my hands and face
on my back? Uh, sure. Do you have to know how to swim?! – You’ve gotta feel safe
and confident around water. And the training you get
at Police College will give you the skills you need. Do you need good eyesight? Yep. So, there is a minimum
visual standard you need to meet. Thanks. I played a cop in the movies.
Can I be a real cop? Sure, as long as you qualify
like everyone else. – What does that do?
– Don’t touch. Can anyone join
the New Zealand Police? You just have to be
a New Zealand permanent resident or a citizen
of New Zealand or Australia. – Austria?
– No. …nga pirihimana o Aotearoa
e tika ana kia powhiritia? Uh… Ooh. As long as she’s 18 when she starts
Police College, that’s fine. (SEAGULL CAWS) PANTS: How… fit… do… you… need… to be… to… (PANTS) apply? Well, you have to be reasonably fit
to get through. But you get a lot of support
along the way. Hello. People say
I’m a pretty good negotiator. Does that mean I can go straight
into the police negotiation team? Uh, that’s a career option after
you serve your first two years. – What about one year?
– Two. – 18 months?
– Two. – 20 months, and I’ll do weekends.
– No. Two years. Two years,
and I get to keep the pen. No. But negotiation’s
a really good skill to have. Sheep’s been levitated up.
You see that? Do you have a paranormal division? – Yeah.
– No. – No.
– No. OK. – That was close.
– I know. (SERIOUS, DRAMATIC MUSIC) – So, are you currently recruiting?
– Yes. And right now, we need more
Police Officers than ever. If we’ve answered your questions,
apply now. If you have more,
ask us at newcops.co.nz. (KEYBOARD PLAYS QUIRKY TUNE) (PLAYS DISCORDANT NOTE) Did we make
it to the new recruitment video? – Yes.
– Oh, OK. (DOGS BARK) Captions by Able.
