Public Outcry to TNN on Police School Training Social Media Post

A TikTok post by an officer has attracted the attention of the Bermuda Police Service after TNN brought the post to the attention of the BPS.

In the post which has now been taken down the officer is seen doing training manouvre in a police vehicle in an area at Bernard Park, used by driving instructors to teach reversing and parallel parking.

However, there are expletives heard in the video, but clearly an overlayed voice taken from off the internet and not the officer’s voice.

We contacted the BPS Corporate Communications Department to find out whether the use of a police patrol vehicle paid for by taxpayers, to make TikToks by an officer and posted on his personal page was acceptable.

A spokesman responded “The Bermuda Police Service (BPS), is aware of the social media post involving an officer using a BPS vehicle.

While the officer was at the time involved in a legitimate police training exercise, the recording of that video for use on social media in the manner which it was, is not in keeping with proper police protocol.

The matter is being addressed internally.”
