Fla. recruits fired over profanity, misconduct
By Jim Schoettler
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A seedy tale of sexual misconduct, profane jokes and other inappropriate behavior at the Jacksonville police academy led to the firings of six recruits, including the woman who filed the initial complaint, according to an internal investigation.
The five men and one woman were fired Friday, a day after they graduated from the academy. As graduates they remain certified officers who can seek police work elsewhere.
