Spokane sheriff tells deputies ‘no sex on duty’

SPOKANE, Wash.— A Washington sheriff has sent a memo to deputies telling them sex on duty will not be tolerated.

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich told KREM-TV 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 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.
