PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. — A Northern California police officer who posted “disparaging” comments on a social media platform is no longer with the department, the police chief said.
Pacific Grove Police Chief Cathy Madalone said in a video posted Wednesday on the department’s YouTube channel the officer is no longer employed by the department but that legal constraints prevented her from commenting on a personnel matter, KTLA reported.
Madalone said the department received a report in November that the officer, who has not been identified, may have been posting disparaging remarks on a social media account, KTLA reported.
The report from KTLA referred to the comments as “obscenity-laden” remarks about Black Lives Matter that were made by the officer on Parler. However, the news organization did not provide sources or quotes, other than the chief. However, Madalone simply referred to the comments as “disparaging social media remarks” without offering additional explanation.
Therefore, it is unknown where KTLA obtained their information.
