After it was claimed that at least five male officers with an on-duty and off-duty female cop, a Tennessee police department caused a stir on Tuesday.
As police in the Nashville suburb of La Vergne investigate charges against a 60-person police department, Mayor Jason Cole revealed five officers have been fired so far and three others have been furloughed paid.
In a statement, Kerr said, “this scenario was inappropriate and we reviewed it as soon as it came to our attention and took action against those involved.” “Rebuilding public trust is our primary goal.”
An internal department report on the investigation was obtained by Nashville-based NBC affiliate WSMV and contained La Vergne’s police report. Officers have spoken of attending “Girls Gone Wild” style parties.
Police Chief Burrell “Chip” Davis said “the conduct of a few individuals does not represent the department as a whole.”
We are “fully staffed to complete all of our patrol shifts,” Davis added, despite the layoffs and suspensions. He claimed specialists had been hired “to help our cops deal with these situations.”
Maegan Hall, the female officer at the center of the case, has reportedly been fired, according to city officials. Detective Seneca Shields, Sergeant Juan Lugo-Perez, Sergeant Lewis Powell and Sergeant Henry Ty McGowan were also fired.
