After a video went viral, police officers in Rawalpindi have been banned by the department from posting on social media, particularly TikTok.
The police department has warned that if a video of any officer goes viral on social media, irrespective of whether it is TikTok, Facebook or YouTube, strict departmental action will be taken against such officers.
The new rules were communicated on Monday in a letter issued by Rawalpindi CPO Ahsan Younas to divisional SPs, circle officers and station house officers.
The letter stated that posting videos on social media and going viral presents a negative image of the department.
It reminded that at least one officer has been suspended after their video went viral on TikTok.
