HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Another female officer with the Hartford Police Department has filed a sexual harassment complaint, alleging she was transferred as retaliation for rejecting a superior officer’s sexual advances.

The complaint filed with the city’s human resources director that came to light Friday was dated Feb. 26.

The officer wrote that she was being punished “for not acquiescing to … unwanted sexual advances.”

It comes shortly after the department’s LGBTQ liaison said she was subjected to inappropriate comments from another officer and the department then mishandled her complaint.

Mayor Luke Bronin says an independent investigator is looking into the complaints.

Chief David Rosado called the latest complaint a “serious allegation” and the department has minimized contact between the officer making the complaint and those she has accused.
