WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida 911 dispatcher has been reprimanded and demoted for playing video games on the job.
The Palm Beach Post (http://goo.gl/Rwvtd3 ) reported Tuesday that 52-year-old Charles M. Morris was demoted from training officer to dispatcher.
The paper reports that an internal investigation conducted by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office revealed Morris played hand-held video games instead of dispatching 911 calls for a shooting and for a hit-and-run crash in October.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Teri Barbera says Morris was reprimanded in early November. Morris has been employed with the sheriff’s office since 2004.
