Florida police sergeant reportedly resigns after posting nude pictures while on-duty

A veteran Florida police sergeant has reportedly resigned after admitting to posting “extremely pornographic” pictures of herself online, including some in her uniform and while on-duty.

Daytona Beach Police Department Sgt. Penny Dane, an 18-year law enforcement veteran, admitted to accessing an online game called “Red Light Center,” a virtual sex club that resembles Amsterdam’s Red Light district, WKMG reports.

“It’s something in my 26 years in law enforcement that I’ve never seen,” Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood said.

Dane allegedly admitted to investigators that she sent the images while on the job. In all, 177 images were found on her office desktop computer, 97 images were found on a laptop inside her patrol car and at least 23 pictures were of Dane herself.

“Extremely pornographic in nature, and in several of the photos that we have since discovered, she was in her uniform,” Chitwood continued.

Dane also intentionally turned off the GPS tracking device in her patrol car so she could access the photos for hours while she was supposed to be supervising other officers on patrol, Chitwood said.

Investigators were led to the discovery after Dane accused another officer of sexual harassment, leading to a review of her own emails. Chitwood said Dane’s sexual harassment claims were later proven false.

“As we got into that hard drive, it was just mind boggling that you could be out of service for that long and just think you could get away with it,” Chitwood told WKMG.
