There are viral animal videos and there are career site videos. The Huntsville, Alabama, Police Department has produced a four-minute spot that encompasses both.

In the latest police department video (see Danbury, Connecticut for another) that tries to be as funny as it is serious, Huntsville uses a dinosaur to explain its screening process. Well, a policewoman dressed as a dinosaur, at least.

The video has drawn tens of thousands of views and more than 100 comments on Facebook as of July 3 evening, most of those comments positive.

You can check out the video here.

I mentioned Danbury, but for more police-recruiting videos, see Sioux Falls, South DakotaLouisvilleFt. Worth, TexasMyrtle BeachNorman, OklahomaPhiladelphiaMidland, Texas; as well as one from a gay policeman.
