The Promotional Clips at the end of the DVD are quick motivational segments for use by law enforcement staff when making recruitment presentations to student groups regarding their local “Career Pipeline” program.
Clip #1 features a few short testimonials from students and then transitions into action shots to fast-paced music.
Clip #2 features comments by law enforcement officers and chiefs about the importance of such school programs, along with testimonial comments by students, and then the clip moves into a collage of action shots to music.
Clip #3 is entitled “Enhancing Your Future Through Public Safety Careers” and features public safety (law enforcement and fire) action shots to music. This clip has been used to “kick off” student assemblies in the past. It is especially powerful when viewed in a large screen theater setting
A POST print reference guide entitled “Building a Career Pipeline” is a companion piece (pdf document) on the DVD and is designed to assist law enforcement staff in developing their agency’s or region’s “Career Pipeline” program.
