CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) — Just three months after taking over policing duties in the City of Camden, the Camden County Police Department is dealing with an apparent embarrassment within its ranks.
It’s a picture that’s gone viral on Facebook: an officer sitting behind the wheel of a Camden County police cruiser, head back, appearing to be napping.
There has been no indication so far when or where the photo was taken, nor who might have taken it.
The poster calls himself (or herself) “I Am Camden.”
It was posted Tuesday morning. Police department officials say they are looking into it but at this point are offering no comment.
It should be noted that the new department has not been completely embraced within Camden, and some people fought hard to block it (see related story).
