Are the police really wasting there time investigating police officer for social media post 3

The real waste of taxpayers money is now the thousands of pounds spent on investigating this officer who is simply being creative and engaging his community.

What a waste of time, A Police Officer who was sat at a cold crime scene for hours on end, used his time proactively to engage his twitter followers and now despite not being able to do anything else at the scene other than sit he is under investigation.

Now the Police Professional Standards department is looking into the video posted by the officer of himself lip-syncing after he was reported to police.

Police Constable Jonathan Gould uses social media to engage with his community in creative ways, now he is under investigation.

The cop shared the clip on social media using an app called TikTok which enables users to create short videos synced with music and camera effects.

The video shows PC Gould traces his fingers down his body and looks suggestively at the camera, before reaching down to his handcuffs and zooming in. While hashtags used include ‘#bored’,

Most of his tweets are done in his own time anyways, so that’s not really costing the tax payer is it?

So what if he is doing this at a crime scene

Crime scenes are not a fun place, and officers can be sat there for hours and hours on end sometimes 12 hours without seeing another person, often missing lunch and no access to toilets.

He is using this time to creatively engage his social media following.

Over 600 people have liked Gould’s video, which was captioned: “#cops #handcuffs #police #bored just on a crime scene doing my job.”

Wasting time

Avon and Somerset Polie have now shamefully placed the officer of 20 years under investigation.

And have said the content will now be reviewed and will consider if they need to take action.

A spokesman said: “We’re aware of videos posted on social media featuring one of our officers.

“We expect the highest standards of professionalism from all our officers and staff at all times and will look at the circumstances relating to the videos closely before deciding what action, if any, is necessary.”

If any action is taken against this cop for simply engaging the community in creative way this will be absolutely nonsense, To even think senior cops are wasting time with this matter is utterly shocking.
