A Little Rock police officer has been terminated after two internal investigations determined she violated multiple orders within the department, the Little Rock Police Department said Monday.
Officer Natasha Sims was fired for violations that included working more than the 16 hours allowed within a 24-hour work day, presenting conduct unbecoming an officer and being absent from her post without permission from her supervisor, the department said in a statement.
The report on Sims also states that she violated Little Rock Police Department policy by failing to correctly fill out all required information in an incident report and "assumed responsibility of an off-duty job by hiring and assigning officers their shift."
The release states that Sims was officially terminated at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Sims will have the opportunity to appeal her firing. As a result, the department will not comment any further at this time, according to Little Rock Police Department spokesman Sgt. Cassandra Davis.
