Commissioner of Police, Major General Antony Anderson has given directions that a police officer seen in a viral video in a compromising position on social media be interdicted with immediate effect.

The Inspectorate and Professional Standards Oversight Bureau (IPROB), has launched an investigation into the activities captured on video.

The video has been circulated on social media with a police officer performing a sexual act.

The officer was seen in the video in a compromising position while wearing his Jamaica Constabulary Force uniform.

Several persons took to social media to voice their frustration that the policeman is being interdicted.

Audio clips were also being circulated online allegedly with the other person who was involved in the action, denying that she was responsible for leaking the video.

In the video the woman can be heard pleading for the officer not to lose his job.

More information will be made available as the investigation progresses.
