LAPD, city attorney join probe of L.A. traffic officers who allegedly starred in porn video

The Los Angeles Police Department and city attorney have joined the investigation of two parking enforcement officers accused of participating in a porn film, officials said.

The city Department of Transportation employees were placed on administrative leave Thursday pending completion of the inquiry. The investigation stems from inquiries by KNBC-TV Channel 4.

"After we were provided the names of the individuals allegedly involved in the misconduct, both employees were immediately placed on administrative leave," Amir Sedadi, the agency's interim general manager, said in a statement. "Because we take the incident so seriously, and in order to ensure that the investigation is done thoroughly, a request was made and granted for the Los Angeles Police Department, City Attorney, and Personnel Department to assist in the investigation and provide recommendations."

According to the station, the video was posted on an adult subscription website and shows an actress approaching a city traffic officer and jumping into his arms. The officer spanks the woman and fondles her bare breasts, the station said on its website.

A second officer is spanked by the actress, who then gets into an official city car and performs lewd acts on herself, according to KNBC's account. A parking enforcement manager knew of the employees' behavior more than two months ago  -- and referenced it in a memo to superiors and employees -- but failed to take disciplinary action, the station reported.

But Sedadi said in the statement that until recently, the city transportation department could not identify the officers involved.

“Photos of what appeared to be LADOT officers engaged in misconduct were provided anonymously to the Los Angeles Police Department and forwarded to our offices earlier this year," he said. "The still photos contained blurred faces and did not contain any identifiable information regarding the individuals, or the source of the photos. In fact, the photos contained faces and vehicle numbers that were all completely blurred beyond recognition and therefore prior to viewing a video from KNBC-TV, we were not aware of the fact that a video existed."

And these two morons are not fired? Would you think they get fired if they are working for private sector?

I hope once they will be fired, they will find a job in private sector like most of the people and they will see how they had lavish benefits and salary. Then I hope they will speak out against the unions because there are still far too many goldfish brains still think that public employees don't have lavish benefits.

OK, let's see if their union defends these idiots, and if they are allowed to receive one of those generous pensions after disgracing themselves and fellow officers.

Well of course the government worker unions want their cut - SEIU and UTLA have already signed agreements with the Porn Actor Union to get a cut of the actionl.

The contract also stipulates of porn industry revenues drop, the taxpayers are going to make up the difference

It's funny how all you people love to talk bad about city employees. Yes these 2 made very, very, very poor decisions. It will ultimately cost them their jobs.

Everyone is capable of getting a City job. Just go to the personal department fill out an application and wait to take a test for the job you're seeking.

Most everyone that is employed by the city must pass a written exam. Then if you score high enough you get interviews.

You people make it seem like you can just go get a job like it's so easy. By the way, those lavish benefits you are speaking of aren't so lavish! They will be even less lavish when the employees must pay extra for them.

Sadly, this story rings true to a lot of California workplaces these days. My wife's workplace currently is employing a porn-actress who is still currently in the business of making porn-films. What's even funnier is the fact that she thinks she will one day rise to the top of the corporate ladder! LOL! Seriously, I believe there should be a law that protect public/private workplaces of these scoundrels of society from allowing them to pretend to live dual lives, as if they can seriously manage to live a normal life after subjecting themselves to such a hanious career, just to make ends meet.

Are the city planners caught driving in a city car to lunch in Rosemead being investigated? We need to see a few firings to restore trust in our over-paid and under-worked city employees.

Additional new benefit added to the union/public sector...sex on the job. Losers are probabley on paid leave trying to figure out on to game the system to up their percs and benefits when (if) they get fired. I disagree with insp. below-you need to have brains to work in the public sector.

Ok, let's back up here. The job I want is the one working for Channel Four and getting to surf porn websites for stories .... how do you get THAT job?
