DPS probes video about alleged inappropriate statements


The Department of Public Safety’s internal affairs division is looking into a video that reportedly shows a man leaning against a police vehicle and told to make inappropriate statements.

DPS spokesperson Jacqueline Rae Shepard said the man, who was leaning against what appears to be a DPS patrol car, seems to be in a confused state.

She said DPS recently learned about the video.

DPS is troubled by the contents of the video, said Shepard, without elaborating as they don’t have details about the video.

“Our job as police officers is to protect and serve the people of the Commonwealth, and to do so while treating each and every resident with dignity and respect,” she said.

She said DPS internal affairs is aware of the situation and will make every effort to find out who was involved, and that DPS will act accordingly.
