Acting Public Relations Officer with the Force, Station Sergeant Michael Blackman (ag), told the media that a post about a member of the Force being injured is false: 

"There is a video currently being circulated on social media, falsely indicating that a police officer was recently shot and injured. 

"That seems to be an old extract from some years ago."
