NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A New Orleans police officer has been fired for alleged payroll fraud.

The department, in a news release Wednesday, said Officer Jayson Germann reported working a paid detail while simultaneously performing his regular duties on three separate occasions between July and August 2013. Additionally, an investigation by the department’s Public Integrity Bureau found that he admitted to working a paid detail 63 times between March 9, 2013 and Aug. 31, 2013, without notifying the department’s command desk as required by department policy.

Germann was terminated following a disciplinary hearing held Wednesday. Interim Superintendent Michael Harrison says the department has a zero tolerance policy for fraud on any level.

Germann was a 15-year veteran of the department, most recently assigned to the NOPD Gang Intelligence Unit.
