Bedford Cops Are the Coolest

It's very exciting to be a police officer in Bedford -- like a C.S.I. episode scored by Trevor Rabin, from the looks of the recruitment video below. I mean, that S.W.A.T. scene? Sign me up. Which is precisely the point of this five-minute help-wanted pitch -- the theme of which is "Who Do You Want to Be?" (Also, one of your better Oingo Boingo songs.) Impressive, though: At around 3:42, it appears the Bedford PD employs the EM-50 Urban Assault Vehicle, which the girls would love to take for a spin in the Alps this weekend. And, pardon, but doesn't police chief David Flory look a little like Jim Halpert? --Robert Wilonsky
