Title: Reality TV show Gold Coast Cops causes tension with police ranks
Post by: Prickle on October 01, 2014, 08:20:25 AM
FORGET about the fight to clean up our streets, the boys in blue are brawling among themselves following the first episode of fly-on-the-wall series Gold Coast Cops.

Rants on social media criticising the Rapid Action and Patrol group and internal noticeboard signs reading “Kill Rap” have made it into the public domain.

Some officers were also annoyed that TV channel Network Ten referred to the RAP officers as “elite”.

“Excuse me guys ... we have had a (sic) email ... all staff are to stop teasing rap THE ELITE ... they have come into stations and seen what has been (said) about them ... so the hand-picked are feeling harassed,” one officer posted on Facebook.

Responding to the criticism of his RAP officers after Monday night’s episode, Superintendent Jim Keogh said he had been inundated with applications from outside police to join.

“We have four vacancies coming up and we’re going to advertise those state wide,” he said.

“But there’s already a lot from Gold Coast stations who want to work with us.”

Supt Keogh said the first show “portrayed the Gold Coast and the squad in a very positive light”.

“I think that people from interstate could look at that and feel safe going to the Gold Coast.

“People who work here are quite humble, they just want to get out there and do their job.

“What other officers think is really none of their business.”

District Superintendent Des Lacy brushed off criticism of RAP as “an internal vent” that had gone public.

“It’s differences of opinions,” he said. “You’re always going to get squabbles between individuals.

“People in all work places put commentary jokes and cartoons. But we make sure that anything that appears on noticeboards that are inappropriate are taken down immediately.”

Supt Lacy said police were discouraged from identifying themselves on social media.

“We’ve already sent out a message to our police that it’s not appropriate to discuss anything to do with policing on their Facebook sites,” he said.

“Especially in these times when we’ve got the threat of retribution and increased terrorist threats.

“But, naturally, police are like anybody and they have family that they want to communicate with.”

I hadn't watched the recent episodes, so I watched the southside one (ep4 i think) last night.... the link to "CMG" was because they found the "declare this" book ferrit wrote a few years back!!!!! they called it "bikie paraphenalia proving the link"... I found myself yelling at the computer screen..  I'm looking forward to seeing "GOLD COAST COPS - INTERNAL AFFAIRS" that would be a better show....
