NORFOLK -- The 911 dispatcher who allegedly made a controversial Facebook post about an officer-involved shooting has been suspended, according to city spokeswoman Lori Crouch.
Jessica Camarillo allegedly posted the comment on Facebook the day after Joshua “Omar” Johnson, 22, was fatally shot by a police officer at a Ghent Wells Fargo.
Police said the officer fired because he feared for his partner’s life.
According to The Virginian-Pilot, the comment was posted on the Facebook page of a retired police officer and read: "I think the officers should sue the family for putting the officers lives in danger, making detectives work past the time they were suppose to get off, the gas it took for them to get to the scene, the bullets used, the hospital bills, the equipments needed for forensics, and making me work the channel instead of reading my hot sexy book...LOL."
Crouch tells 13News the city does have a business conduct policy that requires employees to “use good judgment, behave responsibly, display appropriate workforce behavior and demonstrate the values of accountability, innovation, integrity and respect.”
She would not comment on whether or not Camarillo was still being paid by the city during the employee investigation into the incident.
