Oakland police officer suspended for sexual misconduct while on duty

An Oakland police officer has been placed on leave for sexual misconduct.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the victim first met the unidentified officer through a dating app last year. The officer allegedly pulled up in his marked police SUV and in uniform to the victim's home in East Oakland

"I didn't really want to, but I was like sure, whatever," the victim said, according to the Chronicle.

That same day, a complaint was filed by the victim's sister. The complaint said the officer violated state policy related to sexual activity while on duty.

In a statement to KTVU, the Oakland Police Department said they launched an investigation into the matter "immediately" after learning about the allegations and placed the officer on administrative leave where he remains. 

Because it's a personnel matter, the department said they won't comment further.

It is against state law for any police officer to engage in sexual acts while on duty.
