DALTON, GA (CBS46) -
Two Dalton police officers were suspended after a school bus surveillance camera recorded a profanity-laced speech they delivered to a group of middle school students.
On Nov. 11, Dalton officers John Gurrieri and Steven Collins were addressing a group of between 20 and 50 students from Dalton Middle School about their behavior after the bus driver called 911.
The driver told dispatchers the students were being unruly and creating unsafe conditions on the bus.
Gurrieri, who has been with the department for a year, addressed the students on the bus to tell them to behave. During this speech, Gurrieri used a swear word four times.
Collins, a seven-year veteran of the agency, spoke to one student outside of the bus and also used one swear word while talking to the student.
The police department received a complaint about the incident from a parent of a child on the bus that evening and investigated.
Both officers were suspended for two days without pay, required to do 40 hours of community service at a local youth programs, and will undergo verbal communication training.
"I was very disappointed to hear about this incident. This type of behavior is not acceptable, and is out of line with department and community standards," said Chief Jason Parker. "We do not normally publish personnel actions but after discussing it with the officers, and considering the circumstances, it seemed appropriate to inform the community about what happened and what actions we have taken."
