This Friday, January 16, marks the start of the Colorado State Patrol's new application process. But to get people interested in the idea of a job in law enforcement, the CSP has created a short promotional video highlighting the women in state patrol -- and the fifteen-second video just started airing in 39 theaters across the state.

The video is a shorter version of a promotional video released by the CSP in September. According to PIO Sergeant Rob Madden, all of the female troopers in that video were real officers, and after it got positive feedback, officials decided to make a shorter, second one, with a goal of reaching "the widest candidate pool in our 79-year history."
This is the first time the CSP has shown a promo video in this many theaters. "Law enforcement is always trying to find a way to better interact with the public," Madden says. "This would be a great opportunity to show the general public who had not thought of law enforcement as a career choice that this might be something for them to look into."

The open application runs from January 16 through Monday, January 26. "We encourage anyone who has the interest to contact the state patrol," Madden says. "It's a wonderful job for someone that wants a career in law enforcement."
