TUCSON, Ariz. -- A Tucson police lieutenant has been demoted after allegedly taking sexually explicit photos and videos of herself wearing her police uniform.
Police said Monday that Lt. Diana Lopez used her personal cell phone to send videos and photos to a subordinate officer with whom she was in a relationship. They say Lopez was reduced to the rank of sergeant following an investigation that began last August 2012.
The Arizona Daily Star says anonymous letters sent to the police department about Lopez prompted the probe.
A police report says Lopez's boyfriend apparently showed the videos and photos to other officers from May 2011 through August 2011.
Police say Lopez violated several department regulations, code of ethics and professional standards. They say a recommendation was made to reduce her in rank.
