Female NYPD Officers May Face Discipline Over Instagram Photos

An Instagram account that posts alluring photos of female police officers has landed several NYPD cops in trouble.

The account "Blueline Beauties," which now appears to have been closed, featured female officers striking "come hither" poses next to pictures of themselves in uniform, according to the New York Daily News.

The off-duty shots aren't anything that would get the average person kicked off Instagram -- and they're way tamer than what most celebs post to social media -- but several NYPD officers might face discipline after their photos came to the attention of the department's top brass.

According to MyFox New York:

NYPD policy prohibits members of the police department from posting pictures of themselves in uniform on social media unless at official ceremonies.

The department issued this statement saying the policy "is in part intended to protect officers from divulging identifying information on social media sites that may endanger officer safety."

Investigators are also looking into another Instagram account, "Blueline Beefcakes," which features male officers mugging for the camera.
