The police chief in Tempe Arizona is apologizing after officers attending a conference on women’s leadership in law enforcement went to a strip club during their trip.
The conference, titled “Women Leaders in Law Enforcement Training Symposium,” took place in late October in Palm Springs, California.
Chief Sylvia Moir, who was a panelist at the symposium, stated that her officers didn’t violate any rules when they went to the strip club on the taxpayer-funded trip, according to AZCentral.
Moir said three or four officers, all female, were at the strip club for approximately 20 minutes during their off-time, adding that the department “spends money responsibly.”
The chief’s statements on the incident come after someone sent an anonymous email to news outlets and city leaders, however the tipster misidentified the officers who went to the strip club, according to Moir.
There is no internal investigation undergoing or planned.
