An internal investigation has been launched after three Durham Regional Police officers shot a 'Hollywood style' movie trailer and posted it online.

The problem is, they starred in the video, wearing police uniforms, while inside police facilities, even using police issued equipment.

At one point, one of the officers is seen walking with a taser, towards the camera.

Chief Mike Ewles says he's disappointed on a number of levels.

Of the men featured in the video, two are uniformed officers, and one is a civilian special constable.

"We will be interviewing the employees involved as part of our internal investigation, so I can’t comment further. However, one employee depicted is a supervisor and that’s even more troubling for me." said Ewles in a release. 

“I have no idea what the motivation for producing this video would be, but I believe it is disrespectful to the hardworking men and women of this branch and embarrassing for everyone here at the DRPS."

The professional standard unit is now investigating.
