BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Two Baltimore City police officers were reportedly caught in a sex scandal. The department is keeping the details quiet, but Adam May has some information about the allegations.
The alleged sexual activity occurred in a public place. Officials say it’s been under investigation for weeks.
Two female officers on the Baltimore City police department’s mounted patrol unit are under a human resources investigation for allegations involving sexual activity.
“We have general orders and certain behaviors would be classified as an integrity violation,” said police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi, Baltimore City Police.
A police spokesman would not reveal the details, only saying the officers were in a public place, not on department property.
“A member of the agency witnessed potential inappropriate activity, reported the activity to commanders [who] took swift agency,” Guglielmi said.
This scandal is being discussed among officers on the street. One called WJZ, offering additional information police would not confirm.
The department launched the investigation in October. Criminal charges are not expected, but the officers involved are on paid administrative leave and they could lose their jobs.
“We are committed to holding ourselves accountable, holding ourselves to higher standards when it comes to the public and we don’t tolerate any allegation of impropriety in this agency,” Guglielmi said.
Police say releasing more details could compromise their investigation. When asked why, they said they didn’t want reporters asking questions at the location where it happened.
The officers involved had no comment.
