The officer leaves the shop as the person behind the digital camera chastises him.

“Come on mate, follow the instructions we’ve all been given.

“If I didn’t have a mask, you’d say something to me, wouldn’t you?”

A Queensland Police spokesperson confirmed the incident to 7NEWS.com.au.

“After the officer was confronted by a member of the public, the officer immediately returned to his vehicle to retrieve his mask and self-reported to senior management,” a spokesperson mentioned.

“The QPS’s posture has always been to educate and show compassion with the change of COVID-19 Chief Health Officer’s directions.”

Meanwhile, in New South Wales, a police officer has been fined $200 for failing to put on a face masks inside a fast-food restaurant in Sydney’s north.

“Inquiries revealed a 53-year-old man, who is a Superintendent with the NSW Police Force, was not wearing a face mask while inside the premises,” NSW Police mentioned in an announcement.
