A police officer is under examination by his force after he posted a video of himself lip-syncing to a rap song while supposedly working at a crime scene.
The clip was shared on social media platform TikTok, which lets users create short videos with music and camera effects. The most downloaded iPhone app in the world, it has become hugely popular with teens.
In the video, which is set to rap track 'All In' by ZaeHd and CEO, PC Jonathan Gould appears to be taking part in a meme known as the EmEm dance, which usually sees people film themselves reacting to photos of their crush.
The policeman 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', the caption implies he is also 'on a crime scene' and attending a job as he films himself.
Over 600 people have liked Gould's video, which was captioned: "#cops #handcuffs #police #bored just on a crime scene doing my job."
Other videos uploaded feature Gould mimicking Spongebob Squarepants and singing along to 'Let it Snow', while sitting inside a police car on a frosty day.
The clip has now been removed from the TikTok app.
Last night Avon and Somerset Police - where PC Gould is understood to have worked for almost 20 years - said they were reviewing the content and looking into whether or not any action would be necessary.
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."
Harry Fone from the Taxpayers Alliance said: "It is startling that this officer considers uploading inane videos to social media to be the best use of his time on the job.
"Taxpayers want to see police officers out on the beat tackling crime and working for their communities rather than behaving unprofessionally."
