The Chengdu police force released a series of Hong Kong action film-inspired recruitment posters on their official Weibo page featuring hard-as-nails officers posing with guns and…crossbows.
The six different posters showcase qualities that each applicant should possess, including “Bravery” and “Toughness”.
Like this guy!
Chengdu Police reportedly aim to fill 359 positions in the police force, including 174 posts for the integrated management team and 100 posts for special armed forces and SWAT teams. Within these teams, there are 11 to 20 openings for females.
Police in the posters can be seen posing with a crossbow, a hunting weapon not generally associated with police. Indeed, some special armed force members are required to be trained in the ancient art.
Eight of 100 posts for special armed forces are specifically tailored for people who were once in the People’s Liberation Army or Chinese Armed Force. Candidates are required to perform well in wrestling, kickboxing, shooting, climbing and should have a knowledge in military tactics. Also, 21 posts are opened for talents of various sports, such as basketball, football, volleyball, swimming and so on.
Less than thirty minutes after the release of these posters, over a hundred of people had already forwarded the images and commented on them. We say the crossbow hooked ’em.
