US police produce spoof video in campaign to recruit new chief

Police in Hillsboro, Oregon, have found a novel way to recruit a new chief of police.

They have released a video in which police staff appear responding to spoof crime situations and singing the praises of their community.

BBC Radio 5 live's Rhod Sharp spoke to Lieutenant Michael Rouches, Information Officer for Hillsboro Police Department, about the video.
