SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An unnamed Harrisville police officer being investigated for sexual misconduct has been fired.

The Standard-Examiner in Ogden reports (https://bit.ly/1OpaDGD) that a full internal investigation wasn’t required because the officer was new to the department and on a probationary period. Police Chief Maxwell Jackson confirmed Thursday that he recently fired the officer because the small department couldn’t afford to be down an officer during the lengthy process.

Ogden police began the investigation in early December.

The officer’s name has not been released, and officials haven’t provided more detail on the allegations. Weber County Attorney Chris Allred said the officer had not been criminally charged as of Thursday.

Harrisville is a town of about 6,000 people located about 45 miles north of Salt Lake City.
