A young female Met Police officer has provoked fury from her colleagues for posting a glamorous TikTok video in which she poses and displays a tongue stud while in uniform. 

The officer, whose Instagram profile shows her name as Sam Helena, posted the video online before it was shared on Twitter last night and was heavily criticised. 

In the video, she is seen smiling and striking different poses, including one where she displays a tongue stud, even though officers are not allowed to wear them while on duty. 

In response, one officer commenting on the video said she was ‘naive’ and ‘immature’ while another said that if they did the same, their ‘line manager would eat me for breakfast’.

Another branded her ‘unprofessional’ and said it was an ‘inappropriate’ use of social media and ‘duty time’. 

The officer, whose force identification number appears to be SN 26 7, indicating that she is a Police Constable, rather than a higher rank such as Sergeant. 

The Metropolitan Police’s uniform code says officers must not wear jewellery through ‘the nose, eyebrow or tongue’.  

The young woman’s video features a caption which reads, ‘from uniform to plain casual’ before directing users to her Instagram account, ‘inkedbarbie_official’. 

The video than shows her in her casual clothes, where she is seen wearing make-up and smiling. 

Other videos and photos on the officer’s TikTok profile, samhl93, show her again posing in police uniform. 

In one the policewoman is seen nodding her head to the sound of American rapper KRS-One’s song ‘Sound of da Police’. 

A video featuring various photos shows a female officer wearing jeans and a hooded top but with handcuffs and other police equipment clipped around her waist.

In response to the video posted on Twitter, one officer wrote: ‘Naive, people hate us and when they find our social media they go after our families. 

‘She also looks immature and I don’t think the public appreciate this type of display to put it mildly.’

Another said: Wow of [sic] I did this my line manager would eat me for breakfast.

In response to the video posted on Twitter, one officer wrote: ‘Naive, people hate us and when they find our social media they go after our families

‘She’s is really lovely I have to say! but old school values like me we are much alike like that.’

A third wrote: ‘Unprofessional. In the clip in uniform she is on duty, wearing a Body Warn [sic] Camera. 

‘The police come under enough criticism without inviting it. Inappropriate use of Social Media, and duty time.’  

The Metropolitan Police have been approached for comment.  

The officer’s posts follow news in May that a male constable was under instigation for posting jokey videos on TikTok while on duty.

The officer, thought to be called Jordan, put dozens of clips in the month of May alone, including at least six when he was meant to be working.   

One showed him sitting in a police car with a female colleague joking about one of the stars of Netflix documentary Tiger King being a murderer.

Another showed him opening and closing a car door in sync with a colleague honking the horn to the tune of a pop song.

A third showed an officer approaching a dog unit car as a child’s voice asked, ‘can I pet that dog?’. 

He also posted a clip of a Met officer lifting another over his shoulder.   

The officer’s posts follow news in May that a male constable was under instigation for posting jokey videos on TikTok while on duty 

In September, two female officers who posted TikTok videos of themselves dancing and using foul language while in uniform escaped dismissal even though their actions were branded as ‘gross misconduct’.  

Police constables Amy Taylor and April Cooper, of Cambridgeshire Police, were subject to a disciplinary hearing after a member of the public reported the series of ‘unprofessional’ videos to the force in April this year. 

The clips, filmed while the officers were on duty, in uniform, and in once case inside a marked police vehicle, were found to have damaged the reputation of their force.
