Police Officer Admits Sharing Accident Video


The Bermuda Police Service can confirm that one of our officers inappropriately shared a video of the most recent fatal road traffic collision.

Mr. Darrin Simons Acting Commissioner of Police said, “After the officer noticed that the video was being shared widely within the community, he immediately came forward, took responsibility for his actions and apologised.

This avoided what may have been a lengthy investigation into what transpired.
The matter is now under disciplinary review by the Professional Standards Department to determine the suitable outcome.”

Mr. Simons continued, “I am deeply troubled that we have let the community down by this action. We exist to make Bermuda Safe and causing distress or harm like this is simply unacceptable.

I unreservedly apologise to family and friends of the deceased, to the staff at the gas station who may have been scrutinised, and the community as a whole for the impact this has caused. We can and will do better.”
