Details indicate that the officers, who were not only dressed in full police uniform but were also armed with assault rifles, went viral for dancing to a song that seems to glorify crime and violence.

According to The Jamaica Observer, the song in question is 'Gunman Shift', a popular hit by the dancehall industry's breakout artiste Skeng.

In one of the videos, two female cops are seen lip-syncing to the song while brandishing their official rifles, while another has a male officer dancing in his living room on Tiktok account @christophergordon666.

Disciplinary action and re-alignment

According to the Commissioner of Police Major General Antony Anderson, the lyrics in the background song the officers were dancing to are not consistent with what is expected of the disciplined forces.

“In the videos, the police officers had weapons on them and that's certainly not the image we would expect of our officers,” he said, as reported by The Gleaner.

He added that on top of disciplinary action, the officers will go through remedial training if the organisation decides to retain them as employees.

The disciplinary probe is being handled by the Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau (IPROB).
