A Facebook user, Tracy Lim, penned a lengthy post on Facebook calling out a police officer who was seen posing for photos beside her deceased auntie’s body.

She called his actions “utterly unacceptable and disrespectful” to her family and herself, and added that it is the “worst thing” that can happen when they found their family member “lifeless” on the ground.

Here is what she said (SIC)

Dear Singapore Police Force, is this how police officers are supposed to treat a deceased? By posing like the body beside was nothing but a background or an accessory to a photo?

Is this how you would like others to treat your deceased family member, to treat a very sad situation where someone is lost?

That was my auntie lying on the ground, motionless, and decided to take her life.

Instead of showing basic respect, this police officer decided it was funny and treated the situation as if it was a happy matter, like he just won a trophy, a game or a prize.

Is a dead body a prize to police officers? Is there no integrity on how a police officer should behave, especially when he is on duty, attending to a case involving casualty?

This is utterly unacceptable and disrespectful to my family and myself and anyone who has been through death in the family.

I do not wish this upon anyone, to have a uniformed officer treating their deceased family member like a joke, for his entertainment.

This is the worst thing that can happen when you found your family member on the ground, lifeless, only to see a police officer making fun of it.

How shameful. Shame of you, SPF. Shame on how you train your police officers.

K Shanmugam Sc, Please re look into how SPF train officers.

Please feel free to share this post, I hope no one will have to go through this like we did; rubbing salt onto the wound by someone whose profession is to protect us.

Apologised for officer’s conduct

The Singapore Police Force released a statement about the incident, saying that they have apologised to the deceased’s next of kin.

Lim has also posted an update about the SPF reaching out to her to express their apologies.

Lim’s update

Update:

Singapore Police Force has called and apologized and we accepted their apology. We appreciate the fast action and assurance they will reinforce on the sensitivity when handling such cases.

We wish to rest the matter and let our family have privacy as we prepare for final arrangement of our aunt.

Thanks you all friends for your condolences and support.
