PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Providence police officer who was photographed asleep in a police cruiser has been disciplined.

The photograph circulated on social media shows the unidentified uniformed officer asleep and with her mouth open while sitting in the driver’s seat in a police car parked at an intersection.

In a statement issued Thursday, the department says it was made aware of the photo on Tuesday.

It says the officer was working a paid detail on Sunday for a local business, and says she has been disciplined.

It did not release her name in accordance with the Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights. The department also would not say how she had been disciplined.
