GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Grand Rapids city manager has fired four male police officers at the center of a departmental sex scandal.
Kurt Kimball earlier accepted the resignations of another male officer, a male dispatcher and a female dispatcher accused of having on-the-job sex with the six men at police headquarters.
Kimball says the four fired officers violated city employee guidelines for behavior, embarrassed the police department and tarnished the city's image.
The city opened its investigation in August after the female dispatcher resigned.
The police department has about 330 uniformed officers and 100 civilian employees.
