Five Davis County Sheriff’s Office employees disciplined after harassment investigation
(KUTV) Five Davis County Sherriff’s Office employees were disciplined after a harassment and sexual harassment investigation according to Debbie Alexander a director with the Human Resources Department with the County.
Alexander said the harassment and sexual harassment claims were from two to two and a half years ago and in the fall of 2017. The claims involved multiple complainants against three deputies who worked in the corrections department.
The alleged harassment was apparently reported to Chief Deputy Kevin Fielding and a captain who Alexander said cannot be identified.
An investigation was opened earlier this year. Five employees were placed on administrative leave. More than 30 employees were interviewed and as a result, on Monday April 16th, five employees were disciplined.
Three of the deputies accused of the harassment and sexual harassment were disciplined, although the details of the discipline were not released. Alexander said one of the deputies has since resigned. Two have since returned to work.
A captain whose name could not be released was disciplined for failure to address the issue, but the details of the discipline was not released. That person has since returned to work.
Alexander said Fielding was demoted to captain for failure to address the issue. He has since returned to work.
