Milford cop allegedly had sex on duty
By Sara Withee / Daily News Staff
Wednesday, June 15, 2005

MILFORD -- The Milford cop on leave is accused of going to a private home and engaging in sexual behavior with a woman while on duty, Police Chief Thomas O'Loughlin confirmed yesterday.

"The allegation is the officer engaged in inappropriate conduct of a sexual nature," O'Loughlin said.

On Monday, O'Loughlin would only say the 18-year veteran cop was accused of "inappropriate conduct" while in uniform. The chief also refused to identify the officer or confirm his name, a position he maintained yesterday.

The officer is on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of O'Loughlin's investigation. The sexual conduct allegedly happened at a Milford home last Wednesday during the officer's shift.

If the allegation proves true, the officer could face punishments including a one-year suspension or termination, the chief said.

O'Loughlin gave the Milford Police Association's attorney extra time yesterday to respond to written questions for the officer. O'Loughlin had expected the answers yesterday afternoon and the attorney now has until tomorrow afternoon, he said.

O'Loughlin had initially hoped to complete his investigation by later this week or early next week. It's unclear how the delay will affect that schedule.

Selectmen Chairman Dino DeBartolomeis said he hopes to eventually discuss the investigation's findings with O'Loughlin, who holds hiring and firing powers.

"Basically, it's his call," DeBartolomeis said. "He's got the full authority and as he has said -- and the board feels very strongly -- this is a very serious accusation and the board has always in the past treated this with sensitivity."

DeBartolomeis said the allegation is unsettling.

"It's not a good situation," he said. "It's not good for the Police Department. It's not good for the town. But at the present time, the investigation has to be done fairly."

That happened in Milford, CT last year. Only then it was 5 officers/dispatchers who were having sex on-duty in the cruisers...messy situation.

That's what happens when the husband comes home early...
You brought up a good point Cowboy. Was this person the spouse of the officer? I'm curious if that would make a difference. Anyhoo, who hasn't gotten a little something something while on duty? Give the guy/gal a break!

ProudAmerican, do you think that there would be all this commotion if it was the officers' spouse? Here's the short version. Officer goes to woman's house... they play "hide the salami", and her husband walks in the door, catching them in the act. He leaves, goes to MPD and reports what he just saw.

I'd say that the husband will pretty much get everything in that divorce as well.

She also might have been a little somethin' he had goin' on the side, whether he is married or not, and she may have been a bit frazzled by being nothing more than a piece of ass to him. Maybe she made the complaint herself. Who knows? :roll:

Whether she was his wife, his girlfriend or whatever, that stuff is something you should be doing on your own time. He got caught and is being made an example. It's too bad that this went public, how humiliating.

Any other profession and it is a non issue because most professions are not held to the same standard Police are. If ethics or morals are a non issue to someone as a Police Officer it suddenly makes their testimony in court cases or any other action that they may take as an officer hold less weight. That is why the standard is higher and it does matter.

Hmmm...for example...politicians :!: He could be a successful politician now. It is really a non-issue within that profession, infact, that kind of scandalous publicity will get more votes (or less votes in the case of impeachment ofcourse) :hump:

He should be glad he's not a Florida officer!! Any FLA cop who is found guilty of having sex on duty, has their FLA Law Enforcement Officer certification REVOKED for life!!! It's one of the 7 deadly sins down here [-X
