WINNIPEG, Manitoba, June 24 (UPI) -- A Canadian police department apologized after an X-rated conversation between officers in a helicopter was broadcast over the vehicle's loudspeaker.
The Winnipeg Police Department issued an apology after residents around the city reported hearing snippets of a conversation between officers flying in the department's Air-1 helicopter Monday evening. Residents reported hearing the officers explicitly discussing oral sex.
Resident Brandi Armstrong recounted hearing the conversation to CBC News. She was upset by it, as there were children in the area.
Jacob Serebrin said he heard the officers talking about money and using profanity.
The police department issued an apology on its website Tuesday. The statement read:
"On June 22, 2015, at approximately 9:30 p.m., members of the Winnipeg Police Service Helicopter AIR1, while on routine patrol, inadvertently activated the aircraft's public address system. As a result, the flight crew's conversation was publicly broadcast; 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. This incident is being reviewed. The outcome of this review will be determined at a later time."
