Two Essex Police officers who played the rap classic Sound of Da Police from their marked car on a late night patrol of Chelmsford have been given "words of advice".
In what is believed to signal the end of the matter, the pair were spoken to by a senior officer after their actions were filmed by revellers out during the Easter weekend, before being posted to YouTube and Facebook.
But their actions attracted widespread support, with Essex Chronicle readers stating it showed the force had a sense of humour.
Our online poll attracted almost 500 responses, with 462 saying the officers should not face further disciplinary action.
The track, by KRS One, was made famous in La Haine, the 1995 black and white French film about youths clashing with the police.
An Essex Police spokesman said: "Two officers have been given management actions which included words of advice from a senior officer after acknowledging they inappropriately used their patrol car's PA system."
