SC Deputy in Bikini OK, But Not Sudsy Patrol Car

SC Deputy in Bikini OK, But Not Sudsy Patrol Car

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. — A South Carolina sheriff’s deputy in a bikini at a car wash is OK, but you’d better not show pictures of that sudsy patrol car.

Pictures posted on Facebook of a charity car wash cost a Moncks Corner police officer his job earlier this week.

But multiple media outlets reported there will be no disciplinary action against a bikini-clad Berkeley County Sheriff’s deputy who participated in the event.

Moncks Corner Police Chief Chad Caldwell said a police officer has been dismissed for allowing a city patrol car to be photographed amid bikini-clad women at the Sunday event.

The sheriff’s department says the woman deputy will not be disciplined. A statement says she was off duty, did not use any department resources and did not violate any county or department policies.

    I mean really, if this was for a charity obvilously they got the ok from the Sheriff to do this car wash, I dont understand, was the duty terminated from the SO. If so then something should be done to the Sheriff for allowing the car wash!

    Perfect example as to why ALL LE nationwide should be protected by civil service or something similar. This incident doesnt not justify termination. It offended the sheriff's delicate senses so the deputy got the boot. There needs to be rules admin must follow in order to discipline up to and including termination. This 'good ol boy' crap needs to go away

    Who took the pictures? Who posted them? Unanswered questions. Firing for such a minor incident? If the mayor is photographed next to a bikini-clad woman, will he resign?

    LAPD_JEDI I agree, it's basically going to come down in court as what is indecent or not. At our department grounds for termination include moral turpitude. But, how is this measured or defined and who makes that decision?

    wrong to be fired... maybe a talking about haveing the pictures on facebook. Facebook has been the source of too much drama and there are several agencies that do not allow facebook nor myspace accounts for their employees

    i smell lawsuit........yeah, maybe not in the best image of the dept, but illegal-no...........indecent, no.....anything worse than you could see at a beach or pool? no.....sorry chief, your're wrong.....grow some

    so, if you are working the beach patrol and some women in bikinis pose in front of your cruiser would that be terms for termination...

    what if the women were grotesque, would it be that big of an issue?
    what if it was a family in their swimming suits posing in front of the vehicle?

    maybe a little extreme, but where do we draw the line? if it is not indecent enough to be prohibited in public, how can they prohibit it?

    what if they were in cut off shirts and short- shorts? (but not a bikini)

    some people just need to realize when they are imposing their views on others.....not based on imorrality or indecency but maybe an insecurity of their self....

    hopefully this ofcr's department has a good union or he has a good lawyer.....
