DENVER - A patrol officer has been reassigned to a desk job after he allegedly had sex in his patrol car, the 9Wants to Know investigators have confirmed. In a separate incident, another patrol officer is on suspension with pay for allegedly pursuing a domestic violence victim who he met on a police call.
Patrol Officer Jairon Katz allegedly violated department policy by having sex with an unknown woman in his marked police car. Katz is no longer on patrol and instead has been given an "administrative assignment."
Patrol Officer Scott Kida allegedly pursued a relationship with a domestic violence victim in a case in which he was a responding officer. That violates department policy.
Kida is currently suspended with pay pending discipline, 9Wants to Know has confirmed.
Kida has had past discipline problems.
During the shifts Kida is being paid for but not working, he is required to be at home. He was put on paid leave March 13, according to the department.
A Denver Police Department spokesman declined to comment on the details of the allegations citing a policy not to comment on open internal affairs investigations.
Kida started with the department in 1998 and last worked in district two.
Katz started with the department in 2004 and last worked in district five.
