Johns Creek Police Department really wants to hire you. But they said hiring their next brother or sister in blue has brought with it some pretty interesting applicants.
So they posted a video that’s not Jimmy Fallon or Seth Myers, but it’s a faux talk show, with a ‘Top 10 List’ inspired by David Letterman. That list? "How not to get hired by the Johns Creek Police Department."
For example, number 10: “When asked have you ever been arrested, you say, ‘Not sure. Can you guys go check for me?’
Captain Chris Byers is featured in the clip posted to the Johns Creek Police Department Facebook Page.
“Everything in that “Top 10 List,” has happened here in the last nine years of hiring. All authentic, I promise,” Byers said with a grin.
Since posted to Facebook last month, the video has gotten a whopping 25,000 views and counting, one of the Police Department’s highest views.
“It was one of those times that we decided we want to show the lighter side to law enforcement. To come out with that list, and you just learn to keep a straight face through it,” Byers said. Referring to his reaction to the applicants who happenings actually made the list.
The police department currently has six positions open and says they are being picky.
