This is the moment three patrol cops film scantily clad cyclists, and make lewd comments about a woman’s full derriere leading to an internal probe into their conduct.
The video was filmed by one of the officers during a patrol in the northern Croatian capital Zagreb, and the footage was later posted on social media.
In the video, three cyclists are seen on the side of the road as the cop car approaches them.
The cameraperson zooms in on the body of one man and a female cop is heard tittering in the background.
The officers then notice the woman cycling at the front in a tight pair of leggings and one of them applauds her while another barks like a dog.
The cameraperson zooms in on the woman’s rear and the WPC says to one of the male officers: “She gets you going right?”
One man says: “I don’t mind.”
The other male cop says: “Like she isn’t true. You’re not real girl!”
The video sparked outrage online and the Zagreb authorities have confirmed that they will initiate disciplinary proceedings against the three officers for damaging the reputation of the police.
The Croatian Interior Ministry commented on the video saying: “We have requested a probe from the Zagreb Police Department with the regional police station. It is in progress.
Netizen ‘Jgudan’ said: “Is there anyone in the police force who is out of puberty?”
‘Grickitop1’ commented: “When they are on duty, they should behave professionally.”
‘HuremAtrl’ wrote: “They are only people, but there is no justification for this.”
‘Irabobi2’ said: “They should be ashamed of themselves.”
