A patrol officer with the Hamilton Police Department accused of having sex while on-duty was terminated Monday, according to a statement from Hamilton police. 
An investigation into the patrol officer’s actions occurred Monday after other officers reported the possible misconduct, according to the statement. 
Investigators said it was “quickly established” the patrol officer had engaged in a “consensual sexual encounter with an adult acquaintance” while on duty. 
Police Chief Craig Bucheit told Enquirer media partner Fox19 the alleged sexual encounter happened months before the accusation surfaced.
A video of the sexual encounter was briefly posted online, which led to the other officers becoming aware of the incident, Bucheit said. The video has since been taken down.
The patrol officer, who was with the department for about one year, and has not been named as the investigation is ongoing, was terminated Monday after the allegations surfaced. 
“The community places their trust in us, and when a member of our organization purposely violates that trust, the consequences are swift and severe,” Bucheit told Fox 19. 
 “While I am deeply disappointed and disturbed by this incident, I am incredibly proud of the officers who discovered and reported this misconduct and our investigators who moved quickly to develop information that allowed me to act decisively.”
An investigative report regarding this incident is expected within 30 days.
 Enquirer media partner Fox19 contributed to this report. The Enquirer will update this story once more information is available.
