NSW Police Are Recruiting On TikTok & Aussies Are Mad

“In which course do they teach you to assault minorities? Asking for a friend.”

As more brands, institutions and even government bodies attempt to dip their toes into the youth-infested pool that is TikTok, an avalanche of PR disasters awaits around every corner.

I cannot think of a worse idea than NSW Police getting TikTok what the fuck were they thinking

An undeniable fact that none know better than the good ol’ fashion NSW Police department.

While some ~zesty, hip beatz~ play softly in the background, the on-screen talent (who looks a little like he could be ScoMo’s cousin?) talks us through the application process — in unrelenting detail.


Let me tell you, if I did want to apply to be a police officer before this video, that desire has now been forever quashed out of sheer boredom. 

In the comments section, NSW Police gave a little further insight into the salary, benefits and training times you can expect:

Predictably, Aussies spared no time absolutely rinsing the NSW Police for the video:


^Honestly, unsure if it’s a roast or serious request. Either way, go off. 

But you tell me — what do you think of this recruitment strategy? Does it seem normal enough for a government body? Or does it give you cringe-worthy dystopia vibes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
