Dover police probe photos of officers who appear asleep
DOVER, Del. - Dover police are investigating after photos of two officers who appear to be sleeping in their patrol vehicles were posted on social media.
In a Facebook post Tuesday police said the department was looking into the matter and that such "behavior is unacceptable to our agency, unfair to our citizens, and certainly outside of department policy."
The News Journal reports one photo shows an officer leaned back in his driver’s seat with his eyes shut and his mouth partially open.
