It's no secret that there is a current shortage on new police officer recruits. Low pay and the current environment surrounding police officers is keeping potential new recruits away. But a recruiting video like this one from Texas could help the Boise Police Department out immensely..

Our son originally was going to college to become a police officer.  That changed recently, mostly because of the way he sees police officers being treated.  That combined with low wages...high stress and the possibility that at any moment he could be killed changed his mind. As a father, I have to admit, I was proud that he had chose to become a police officer, but I am more happy that he has decided against it.

Don't get me wrong, I have many friends and even some relatives who serve, but with the treatment of police by some people in this country, I am a little bit more happy, knowing that is one less thing I have to worry about.

Are interested in becoming a police officer? Get details below. The one advantage about there being a shortage of police recruits is that it's easier to become an officer now than ever before...
