Female NYPD Officers Face Discipline Over Selfies in Uniform

December 01, 2014  | 

Some female police officers may be in trouble for posting come-hither photos of themselves on social media, sources said Monday, reports the N.Y. Daily Mail.

What's got police brass seeing red isn't that they are flaunting their assets, it's that they are turning up the heat on sites like "blueline_beauties" while wearing NYPD uniforms — an apparent violation of Police Department regulations, the sources told the Daily News.

The NYPD doesn't have a problem with officers flaunting themselves online, but it does have a policy banning officers from wearing uniforms on social media — unless the pictures are of themselves at official ceremonies — in an effort to maintain the credibility of the officers. The offending officers could lose vacation time, sources said.

Social media do's and don'ts are part of NYPD training, with the more diligent training officers and integrity control officers regularly telling cops to be careful about what they post on social media.

"Members of the service utilizing personal social media sites are to exercise good judgment and demonstrate the same degree of professionalism expected of them while performing their official duties," the 2013 order reads.

I agree 100%. These "new cops" think and act like kids! How stupid do are they anyway? How very unprofessional even if it was NOT against the rules. Just another example of how the new generation think they can do and act anyway that they please and think the PDs "owe" them and that they have a job no matter what stupid thing that they do. So many people lack common sense, pride in the job and the uniform and treat this job like a game and a "right". If I were the boss there they would get one warning and the 2ed time termination because it reflects DIRECTLY on their ability to make common sense decisions which will relate even at work. If they did not punish this you all know that it would not be long before there is a half nude or nude "cop babes" calendar and the participating "officers" would say that its "free speech" and "art" and they have a "right" to do it even in partial uniform and identifying themselves as cops….you know I'm right.

@kevCopsAz didn't I see you standing in line to buy a fire fighter hunk calander? That's a little hypocritical. You know I'm right.

I think Police Magazine should show photos of these babes so we can rate them from 1 to 10.

I'm just curious about how the female cops on Blueline Beauties came to the attention of the Brass in the first place.......

I think this is a bit of an over reaction. How is it any different then the multiple reality tv shows following cops around including at home? Who can forget Deputy Andrea Penoyer from Police women of Broward County in the pink bikini at the beach.
I looked at the site and didn't see anything outrageous. The women are all wearing their uniforms properly. Some have pictures of themselves in uniform and then immediately beside they are wearing civilian clothes or in some case swimwear at a fitness competition. The civilian clothing may be a bit revealing in some cases, but it's mostly girls just letting their hair down. None of them are disrespecting their uniform.
If you look up "Fit Cops" on Facebook, you will see scores of men doing the same thing.
Remember what Peel said: " The Police are the Public and the Public are the Police...."

It's a new generation of Officers policing a new Generation of people.

No harm no foul in my opinion

Does anyone else remember the Do You Have Court Today calendars that used to be in the monthly issues of Police Product News, parent mag of Police?

I remember them well, and I even have a few old copies of PPN laying around with some of them in the mags. For that matter, I still have issue #1 of PPN.
Damn, I just realized...I'm OLD!

Sounds like a better time. Let's bring that back. We need to give the fire fighters a run for their money.

As a retired professional photographer, I agree with most that any law enforcement officer who busts your ass for a violation is still their own person on their own time, whether partially clad in uniform or out. Guess this is my own liberal side. I'd still photograph them in holster, cap and boot only. Whether it should be revealed on the likes of social media is another matter, but the choice to be photographed for ones own desires is a privilege and a right, IMO YMMV.
