Sources say DPD officer accused of having sex in patrol car removed from duty
DENVER — Two Denver Police officers have been removed from duty during investigations into “inappropriate conduct” cases.
Denver Police spokesman Lt. Matt Murray says the two cases are unrelated to each other.
Murray says Officer Jairon Katz is on paid administrative leave after a woman came forward with a complaint alleging inappropriate behavior last week. Murray had no other details to say about the case.
But sources tell FOX31 Denver News there are allegations against the officer that he had sex in his police cruiser while he was on duty. Katz has been on the force since 2004.
In the other case, Murray says Officer Scott Kida is suspended with pay. He’s accused of “inappropriate behavior with a domestic violence victim in a case he was investigating,” according to Murray.
Internal affairs wrapped up its investigation into Kida’s case. He was suspended March 13.
