The incident only came to light last month after the family of Francie Munoz received footage from a dashboard camera as part of the investigation.
In a written statement sent to the family today, the officers said their remarks were ”inappropriate, disrespectful and unprofessional” vowing not to repeat their ”lapse in judgment.”
The Munoz family, who still want the officers to apologize in front of the media, say they will attend an August 15 police tribunal hearing, where the officers are expected to face Police Services Act charges.
