LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Note: The video in the player above is from February 20, 2021.

Photos posted on Twitter allegedly show an LMPD officer and police cruiser parked outside the EMW Women’s Surgical Center. The post came from the account “LvilleClinicEscorts” which is run by volunteers who escort patients and staff to and from the clinic.

“LMPD has previously, and will continue to, respond to calls for service at the location as needed. The safety and well-being of the clinic’s staff and patients remains a priority for the department,” an LMPD spokesperson told WHAS11 in a statement.

The officer has been placed on administrative reassignment pending an investigation by the Professional Standards Unit.
