TORONTO - Two Durham Regional Police officers have been accused of discreditable conduct, after a spoof movie trailer was posted to YouTube.

The minute-long video, called Central Cells, stars two officers and one civilian special constable acting as disgruntled employees trying to get out of cellblock duty.

“Forced to service prisoners ... how far will they go for freedom?” flashes across the trailer, as dramatic background music plays. The mock trailer, which was posted in January, appears to use police stations, cars and cells as a backdrop.
