A Boston.com report indicates that Jeffrey Moore of the Lowell Police Department was placed on administrative leave for napping his cruiser.
The Lowell Police Department has placed an officer on administrative leave after The Lowell Sun published a photo showing the officer lying back in his cruiser with his head on a pillow.
The photo, sent in by a Sun reader, was taken at 5:30 a.m. near Rogers Middle School in Lowell, according to the paper. The officer can be seen in a deeply reclined seat lying on a large pillow.
“While extremely embarrassing this is not representative of the hardworking and dedicated men and women of the Lowell Police Department,” Superintendent William Taylor said on Facebook.
