    Seriously? Wow. Having spent time there, is it that hard to find a police chief?

    Well, it's the classic problem finding qualified applicants- the applicant they want wants more than they offer.

    I think it makes a joke out of Hilsboro Cops; and the community. Hilsboro, like any other community, needs a professional lawman(or woman) to lead their agency-and I think this video would do nothing but turn away any self-respecting candidate of the caliber the city and dept. would want. Just my opinion...

    They might have a larger budget if they didn't waste it on stupid promotions like this.

    For a police dept this is pretty good. Makes them seem a lot more approachable than .. others.

    Completely disagree w/nwhpfan

    Saw it on fox news, I guess it's raising some brows because the city spent $9,000 in taxpayer money to fund this video. You think it was well spent?

    Hmm, really only $9K? I find that hard to believe, unless a lot of stuff was volunteered. That is really REALLY cheap for something like that.

    If it lands them a decent police chief more quickly than not, it might be well spent. Of course, I'm surprised they aren't trying to recruit from within their ranks. But that is me.

    Well.. I would imagine they're planning to pay a salary in the neighborhood of $150k/year, maybe more... so if a good candidate that'll stick around comes by, what's 9 large?

    Have I missed something?
    I thought they only lowered the standards for women and minorities.
