LOS ANGELES — Do you have what it takes to join the Los Angeles Port Police? NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal wants to know.
In a recently released recruitment video, the department calls on “the big guy” to help apprehend a fake “bad guy on the run.”
“Let’s bring in the Big Shamrock,” one officer says.
“Bring in the Diesel,” another says.
Shaq eventually makes his entrance by clinging to the back of a Lenco Bearcat.
“Team is more important than any one of us,” Shaq says. “If you have what it takes to join the Los Angeles Port Police, come on down. It’s time to dive in.”
In 2002, Shaq took on the role of a reserve officer for the Los Angeles Port Police Reserve, WJW reports. He continued his law enforcement journey in 2016 when he was sworn in as a sheriff’s deputy in Jonesboro, Georgia.
