Regarding the conduct of on duty Officers at public events.
Santa Ramona Police Department wishes to make it known that it does not in anyway endorse or support the use of inappropriate or discriminatory language towards members of SRV City Council, the Mayor or any other member of the public.
A distinct lack of tact was shown by an SRPD Officer during a public council meeting recently. While Police officers do have freedom of speech, they may not exercise this right while on duty or in uniform. This behavior was wholly unacceptable, inappropriate, and a violation of SRPD Code of Ethics. The Officer involved has been suspended without pay.
