TWO metro police officers caught in a "compromising position" are facing disciplinary action, the Ekhurhuleni metro police said yesterday.
Chief Superintendent Wilfred Kgasago said: "They did not find them in the sex act. They found them in a compromising position. They had ruffled clothing. They came to the conclusion based on that."
Kgasago said the incident happened on January 25 this year when a community policing forum (CPF) member and an ANC councillor walked in on the pair at the Benoni metro police offices - which were only open during office hours.
According to The Star newspaper, the CPF member and councillor were trying to help a businessman who had contacted the metro police in an emergency, but could not get through.
"This came to our knowledge. This is a serious allegation," Kgasago said.
Statements were made by the councillor, the CPF member, the businessman and the officers involved. The investigation was handed over to a unit within the metro police that deals with integrity and professional standards.
"Based on the information we have, these officers were not supposed to be in the offices. They were actually on duty," Kgasago said.
He said a recommendation had been made to the municipality's director of labour that they be found guilty of bringing the metro police into disrepute and of neglecting their duty.
He said the outcome would be known soon. - Sapa
