FCPD Statement Regarding Jan. 1 Radio Transmissions

This morning, the FCPD was made aware of inappropriate radio transmissions that were broadcast shortly after midnight on our police radio system. Our Internal Affairs Bureau quickly investigated this alleged misconduct and the police officer involved was interviewed. We have confirmed this officer was off-duty and in his personally owned vehicle. No other person was in the vehicle with him. The off-duty officer had his portable radio in the trunk of his car and forgot to turn it off. The portable radio was inadvertently activated while the officer was driving. Our investigation revealed that the off-duty officer was listening to “audio porn” over his Bluetooth in his vehicle, which was captured on his activated police radio. The “audio porn” in question has been positively confirmed as the same file broadcast over our police radio system. Our Internal Affairs Bureau is continuing this investigation.
