Spokane sheriff tells deputies, ‘no sex on duty’

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — In what may seem like a no-brainer, the Spokane County sheriff has sent a memo to deputies telling them that sex on duty will not be tolerated.

Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich tells KREM he had to spell out the policy because a deputy he fired for the behavior won his job back last month in arbitration.

The memo says that sex on duty is a breach of the public trust and a breach of the sheriff’s office code of ethics, core values and officer safety.
