Social Media Video
Release Date: July 24, 2017
Kingston Police have become aware of a video posted to social media today where an elderly gentleman passed through a barricaded area due to flooding and became stranded in deep water.
The audio portion of this video captures a male berating and using profane comments towards the driver. Senior police management have now learned that the voice on the video is that of an officer with the Kingston Police.
An internal investigation into his conduct has now been launched. On behalf of the Kingston Police we would like to apologize to the driver, his family and to our community. This type of behavior by our members will not be condoned.
