Police department's recruitment video featuring Stormtrooper a big hit

A police department in Texas enlisted assistance from the Galactic Empire for its latest officer recruitment campaign.

The Fort Worth Police Department posted the recruitment video Friday on Facebook, where it quickly went viral. The video features a police officer observing a Stormtrooper attempting to strike a paper target. Darth Vader makes a special appearance. A message at the end, scrolling like the “Star Wars” credits, invites those with better aim than a Stormtrooper to join the force.
