An investigation has been launched into the video of the policeman and police woman vibing to the popular dancehall track, ‘Touchdown’, which was done by Stylo G, Nicki Minaj and incarcerated deejay Vybz Kartel.
The police’s Corporate Communications Unit (CCU) told sources that the video has been brought to higher authorities to determine whether or not the officers as seen in the footage breached any of the rules of the Jamaica Constabulary Force’s (JCF) social media policy.
In the video that has now gone viral on social media, the policewoman is fully clad in uniform, and can be heard singing along to Vybz Kartel’s verse of the song.
As she sings: “Just touchdown like NASA, Nicki p*m p*m fatta- while you deh a your job, your girl giving me a bl*w job,” while the policeman can be seen rocking to the beat.
The video, which has been posted on several pages online, as raised questions about how law enforcers should conduct themselves in the social media space, with users labelling their behavior as ‘unprofessional’.
Several social media comments pointed out that although the video may not have been intended to cause harm, the officers were in with their uniforms and should have ‘known better’.
One user comment was,
“I don’t not find this amusing”,
Another user said,
“Unuh do dem thing dey outta whonu uniform if whonu respect whonu uniform how people ago respect whonu”,
“This serious. No sah, dem police yah nuh real, if them a gwann suh inna them uniform cah jus imagine way dem keep up when dem nah work”.
Adding insult to injury, the law enforcers seemed to have been in the presence of a civilian while the video was being recorded.
The policewoman can be heard saying “Da duty yah nice eeh,’ as she bobs and sings along to the track.
