Houston Police Department Sergeant Stacey Suro, a single mom and 20-year police veteran, has been suspended for posting sexually explicit photos of herself on a popular modeling website.
Suro had posted more than 100 photos on the website ModelMayhem.com, which serves as a medium for both part-time and professional models and photographers.
In some of the photos, some of which are completely nude, Suro was dressed in bondage gear. She also clearly stated she was a model for hire.
According to the New York Daily News, after word of the photos got out last week, Suro was relieved of her duties, while investigations into her conduct were commenced.
Department policies stipulated that 'employees shall exhibit professional conduct at all times and shall not engage in any activity, including unlawful activity that would degrade or bring disrespect upon the employee or the department'.
Officers are also required to disclose other jobs outside of work. It was unclear if Suro had told the department she was a paid model, the report added. (ANI)
