INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indiana State Police have turned to YouTube in an effort to recruit new troopers.

The agency has posted a one-minute video outlining the minimum requirements necessary to apply to be a state police officer.

The video says applicants must be U.S. citizens between age 21 and 40, have correctible vision of 20/50, and have a valid driver’s license and a high school diploma. Troopers could end up behind the steering wheel of a cruiser, piloting a helicopter, working as a diver or as a member of a SWAT team.

The message can be found on YouTube here.
