Controversial television personality, Afia Schwarzenegger is in trouble for posting a picture of herself wearing a police uniform without authority.

Reports say she was invited by the Police Intelligence Unit of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on Wednesday.

When questioned by the police, Afia said the uniform was given to her by her producer whom she identified only as Paa.

“She told the police that the pictures were taken as a promo prior to the production of a new television series to be aired on TV Africa titled ‘Political Police.’

“She could, however, not produce her producer whom she claimed had travelled outside Accra to shoot a documentary and could not be reached on his mobile phone,” Graphic Online reported.

The police, however, explained that anybody who wanted to use a police uniform for any form of television production, drama or educational activity must first apply officially to the Police Administration through the Public Affairs Department of the Ghana Police Service,”

After the application is reviewed, an officer in the region or police division where the uniform is needed is appointed to assist the applicant to obtain the uniform under supervision.

If the uniform is for a drama, television show or movie, the script and the role of the person, using the uniform, is reviewed to ensure the police uniform is worn in a manner that will make the character appear professional.

“The police uniform is worn with a cap on, boots and properly tucked in, and whoever wears it, must carry himself or herself well and project the institution in a positive light. But Afia Schwarzenegger was without a beret, she was in heels and she was not dressed appropriately,” said the police source.
