No one tracks down a bounty better than the Star Wars' Boba Fett.

So, someone who looks like Boba Fett, one of the most feared bounty hunters in the Star Wars galaxy, showed up this week in a video posted by Fort Worth police on Facebook and Twitter as part of a recruitment campaign for the department's Code Blue program.

It's not the first time police have turned to the Force for help. Last year, Chewbacca showed up in a recruiting video for officers.

The new almost two-minute video focuses on getting residents involved in police programs such as Citizens on Patrol.

In the video during a roll call, a Fort Worth police officer displays photos of bad guys such as Tommy Trouble and Trickster and tells residents and attending police officers the crooks need to be caught.

Each time the officer holds up a photo of a suspect. Boba Fett walks in with that suspect.

"I can't stand that guy," one Fort Worth officer says as Boba Fett brings in the last suspect.

The video ends with Boba Fett giving encouragement to the officers as they file out of the room, "Nice try," "Maybe next time."

The video encourages residents to sign up with the department by emailing codeblue@fortworthtexas.gov.

Chances are good that residents will not be equipped with armor such as the one worn by the Mandalarian warrior Boba Fett.

Fort Worth Police Department's video involving Chewbacca is ... well, you'll just have to watch it to see.
