As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, thanks to a Croatian TikToker, Croatian police officers have decided to try attract the attention of younger people and popularise the profession of ”policeman” in a rather unusual manner, as reported by HRT.

Ivan Tokic, a 21-year-old man from Rijeka, is a young entrepreneur and ”content creator”. A TikToker, to be more precise. In the three recorded TikTok reels they came up with together, the Croatian police and Ivan Tokic invited young people to join their ranks.

“The first competition we highlighted is for retraining, this is aimed at people who have finished high school, who can enroll in retraining, complete their course and become trainee police officers. The second competition is for the third grade of the Josip Jovic Police Academy, urging young people who have completed the second grade, meet the requirements and can enroll in the third grade of the police school, to get enrolled,” explained Gabrijel Flegar, a Croatian police officer of the the Primorje-Gorski Kotar police administration (MUP).

But what is the relationship between Ivan Tokic and the Croatian police? So far, there is none. This young man came up with the idea of ​​promoting preventive actions carried out by the Croatian police through social media, he prepared all of the necessary documentation, but didn’t know how to actually make contact with the “boys in blue”, aside from committing a crime to get their attention of course, which he chose not to do.

”I decided to go to the police station with those papers, the people there were kind, they welcomed me with open arms, I was a little anxious about it all, but they were really kind as I said”, said Ivan Tokic, a young entrepreneur and content creator from Rijeka.

“We went to meet each other, there were actors and extras, some athletes, Gabrijel showed me all kinds of things, there were a lot of anecdotes and he couldn’t tell me everything he wanted to in one single statement,” said Tokic of the police officer’s enthusiasm at the idea, but the most important things were recorded and posted on the platform for all to see.
