SAN JUAN – The chief of the Puerto Rico Police Department, Jose Caldero, announced on Friday the dismissal of two officers for making a sex video at La Fortaleza, seat of the island’s government.
Caldero said in a communique that the cops who were dismissed are Jose Melendez Melendez and Tatiana Pratts Morales, who made a video last February featuring a sexual act.
Besides acts of insubordination and indiscipline, they have been charged with harmful, immoral and disorderly conduct to the detriment of the police force.
They are also accused of using government property to perform unofficial activities, among other transgressions.
None of the officers obeyed the summons to take a lie-detector test, Caldero said.
Both cops have the right to appeal their firing before the Investigation, Processing and Appeals Commission of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.
