Community at Winnipeg heard two police officers in a helicopter broadcast comments about oral sex — comments they made without realizing their public address system was on.The Winnipeg Police Service has apologized for the incident, which happened while the pair and one other officer were on routine patrol aboard the Air-1 helicopter on Monday evening. A news release from the police said the officers inadvertently activated the PA system and “as a result, the flight crew’s conversation was publicly broadcast [and] some content of the conversation was inappropriate.”
“The involved members were not able to hear the public address system from within the aircraft. They became aware their conversation had been broadcast and immediately turned the system off.” “The Winnipeg Police Service, the Flight Operations Unit, and the involved members sincerely apologize to all members of the public, especially those who overheard the broadcast,” the release states in part.
Parts of the officers’ conversation were quickly posted on Twitter and then spread further across social media.The tweets caused hashtags like #whoops and #speakerphone to trend in the Winnipeg area.
