Last week Spamford Police appealed for help from the public after video footage was recovered of what appeared to be a male being held hostage The male was semi naked, tied to a chair and was wearing a black mask to hide his identity. The male was being subjected to verbal and physical abuse with a variety of implements.
A major investigation was commenced and a number of specialist officers were involved. This included highly trained hostage negotiators, as we believed that it would only be a matter of time before ransom demands were made.
Following extensive enquiries, we have now established that the footage was from a police body worn video camera being used by one of our own officers and it had accidentally been activated during an informal mentoring session with ACC Jasper Smallcock.
We would like to reassure our communities that as a police service we remain
confident that the benefits of using these cameras and the associated technology will be realised in terms of criminal justice savings and in terms of police officer integrity and safety.
ACC Smallcock remains committed to using realistic role play as
tool for the development
We regret any alarm this incident may have caused
'ACC Smallcock remains committed to developing talent'
