Dover Police Department investigating claims of officers asleep in their patrol car


DOVER, DE – A video circulated online this week alleging two Dover police officers that appear to be sleeping in their patrol car. The Dover Police Department says it is now investigating.

“The Dover Police Department is aware of a photo(s) circulating online that appear to show two of our officers asleep in their patrol vehicles on Monday night/Tuesday morning,” the department said. “We are actively investigating the circumstances surrounding this issue and the appropriate corrective action will occur in short order. The Dover Police Department Code of Conduct is modeled off of a national standard. That standard will be applied to this incident. The behavior is unacceptable to our agency, unfair to our citizens, and certainly outside of department policy.”
