Breaking News ! Two Cambridgeshire police officers committed ‘gross misconduct’ by posting ‘offensive’ Tik Tok videos while on duty and in uniform. PC Amy Taylor and PC April Cooper were handed a final written warning by Chief Constable Nick Dean following a misconduct hearing. The videos were first reported to Cambridgeshire Police by a member of the public on April 22 this year. The member of the public highlighted the videos recorded and posted by PC Taylor and PC Cooper while on duty and in uniform.

. In representations to the panel, the officers claimed the videos were intended to ‘boost morale.’ However, Mr Dean said ‘some of the clips presented cannot in any way be seen to do this’. In his ruling, Mr Dean said: “The videos are made over several days, not just one day so to the public, together with the above references, undermine their confidence in policing within this county. “The respect shown to your colleagues in behaving this way demonstrates a lack of respect for them and a lack of self-control by you both. “The police service and the public expect that all its officers and staff to act in a manner that does not bring discredit to the service or harm its reputation. “The public expects that these standards are upheld and in addition, officers to show respect, courtesy and take responsibility for their duties. The conduct that you both have displayed falls way short of these standards.”
