Two Vancouver police officers who were videoed posing in front of and taking photos of a dead man lying on Third Beach in Stanley Park are now facing a Police Act investigation.
Const. Tania Visintin, media relations officer for the Vancouver Police Department, said the video has been sent to the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC) and that the status of the officers is also under review.
"I can tell you that the VPD does not condone and strictly prohibits officers taking photographs without an authorized purpose," she said.
Visintin said the man's death is not suspicious and that the officers were assigned to secure the site until the coroner arrived.
