SAN ANTONIO - South San ISD board members were briefed this week behind closed doors about an ongoing investigation into several serious allegations involving several handfuls of campus police officers.
A spokesperson for South San ISD says the allegations against six campus cops first surfaced a week ago. They include sexual harassment of an employee, theft of fuel on a district gas card and falsifying police reports.
A source tells me it all started with the theft of fuel. But the allegations grew to include even more as officers themselves told district officials about other alleged wrong-doing by fellow cops.
“Right now it’s being looked into by the administration. We're looking at it very seriously,” said South San spokesperson Ed Suarez. “But right now you also have to understand the police officers have a presumption of innocence, so we can't release any names or go beyond what the basic allegations are, but it's being looked into and hopefully we can get a resolution to the matter as quickly as possible.”
South San recently added four officers to its force, but it’s not known if any of those are involved. It has a total of 18 officers right now, but again we don't know which ones are being investigated.
