Jackie Chan, who is in California filming Rush Hour 3, has joined up with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to film public service announcements to encourage more Asians and other minorities to join the force. Evidently, Asians, Hispanics, Blacks, Native Americans, and other minorities are underrepresented on the LA police force and Jackie has agreed to be an ambassador for the LA Sheriff’s Department. The public service announcement will be shown at recruitment fairs and other events.
Jackie is also a “police ambassador” in Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, and China, but this is the first time he’s doing something like this in the United States.
