NORTH PORT- A North Port police officer and her former supervisor were reprimanded after an internal investigation found they began their relationship while on the same shift, according to an internal report released this week.

The inquiry was launched after Officer Melanie Turner's former roommate told police that Turner had threatened to hang herself under the tree where she and the patrol sergeant first kissed, records show.
