WHBQ says the unscheduled broadcast went out between 8:45 p.m. and 9 p.m. while Officer Dion Anthony, a five-year veteran of the force, was working the evening shift last Monday.
The TV station says the broadcast could be heard not only by the 30 to 35 officers working in that precinct, but also by anyone listening to a police scanner.
Sgt. Karen Rudolph tells WHBQ that every officer has a shoulder mic and a console mic --- and that all communications are recorded.
"Anytime you communicate via a handheld or console microphone you want to remain professional," Rudolph says. "Our job is to make sure all officers follow procedures. In this instance it's possible he didn't follow proper procedure."
