When The Times approached Police Chief DeSanta about the incident, he refused to comment and promptly left the interview. Questions about the APPD’s sex in the workplace policy and any pending charges or discipline actions for the officer involved were ignored. However, the following statement was later released to address concerns about the policies and preventive measures that are in place to prevent occurrences such as this :
A few nights ago, APPD received a complaint regarding an incident in the APPD Precinct allegedly involving a probationary officer.
The Officer has been formally charged and dismissed from service, following a detailed investigation into his background. The Officer is currently in police custody awaiting transfer to a psychiatric institution.
APPD can make no further comment at this time, but would point out that its sexual relations in the workplace policy ascribes to local and State legislature.
Stay Tuned to the Times for more updates and a special “Thank you” to the anonymous sources that use the AP Tip-Line.
