The M81 Battle Dress pants that one of the California Highway Patrol officers is wearing is the Woodland pattern camouflage issued by the United States military since 1981. MultiCam, introduced in 2010, has more tans and browns in it than Woodland. Also, the Ford Crown Victoria, the "Crown Vic," manufactured since 1991, is another indicator of the date of the video. The date of this video is accurate. Be A Hard Target.
