Miami Police Department Sees Record Number of Applications In Hours – CBS Miami

Miami (CBS Miami) – The Miami Police Department is not hiring, at least not since a torrent of applicants forced them to shut down the process within hours. Reason? Probably because of the cult departments on social media.

“I had a DJ upstairs, kinda like Ultra [Music Festival] It feels, on top of the world, on top of the building, and it also includes, Vice City, Grand Theft Auto, that you know your target demographic is going to be that era,” said Miami Police Officer Nick Perez.

Officer Perez talks about his latest work and runs the social media unit. He knows, police orders have been turned off across the country, so he’s had work cut out for him.

“For example, Nick was one of the examples of VLOGs dancing, in the middle of Wynwood at that point, he wasn’t a cop, he was a human,” said Officer Alexander Duarte.

Duarte just graduated from the academy. Before he applied, he looked at several agencies, and Miami’s social media helped sway his favour. He is not the only one.

“I remember for the past two or three years having different vlogs and thinking to myself, I’d like to be in this position,” Officer Paul Scott said.

Youtube has even recognized Miami PD for having hundreds of thousands of views on its video channel, so it comes as no surprise that their latest recruiting video has been a huge hit.

“This is the fastest we’ve ever shut down,” Perez said.

Within hours, there were 1,000 orders when the operation opened last month. It usually takes weeks. Meanwhile, other police departments have taken notice, with some calling the social media unit for tips.

“Across the country, it kind of seems like there’s been a turmoil in policing, and fortunately, we have a wonderful relationship with our community,” Perez said.

The idea was simple, to highlight the relationship with the community, but to talk to real people.

“I used to be a DJ, I’ve always loved shooting video making videos, I just had this opportunity and had to go for it, so this was a dream come true.”
