The Challenge

The Vincennes Police Department learned that they were three police officers short.  They needed to fill the spots quickly and wanted to make sure they had at least 30 qualified applicants.  

The Campaign

During my time at Oswald Marketing, I helped with the creative and production of this video. We decided to put together a recruitment campaign on a budget.  We focused our efforts on creating a sincere recruitment video along with a website dedicated to the benefits of being a Vincennes Police Officer.  I directed, shot, and edited the recruitment videos as well as designed and developed their website at

The Results

The video gained 12,000 organic views in the first 3 days of posting online.   Within 2 weeks, the Chief told us that they had already received over 50 qualified applicants and stated "I think it has been a successful campaign for sure not only for the hiring process but public outreach. We saw more applicants with bachelors and associates degrees completed than usual."
