Police launch Harlem Shake video in a bid to recruit cadets

Staffordshire Police has teamed up with Stafford Sports College to produce a video of popular internet dance craze, the Harlem Shake, in a bid to recruit new cadets.

The recruitment drive is a cadet scheme where young people help police tackle anti-social behaviour in the local community.

The dance sequence, which began in Australia, has been performed by other police forces, fire services and universities in the Midlands, helping the craze top one billion views on YouTube.
