UPDATE: Cedar Rapids officer admits to sleeping on the job

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Rapids Police officer photographed sleeping in a police car has been disciplined.

Public Information Officer for the Cedar Rapids Police Department Sgt. Cristy Hamblin says that the officer, who has not been identified publicly, admitted to falling asleep on the job on May 10.  She also says that while there were other factors involved, they are irrelevant because officers are not allowed to sleep on the job.

Hamblin says that the officer was disciplined, but the exact discipline will not be released.  Hamblin says the officer was not fired.

The picture was sent to KWWL on May 12, by Tim Pugh who says he received the picture from a friend who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of retribution.
