The police chief of Miami-Dade County Public Schools, suspended last year amid allegations of repeated sexual harassment, has been demoted, the school district says.
School district spokesman John Schuster declined to comment on why Chief Charles Hurley was demoted, or whether the decision was due to any findings of improper behavior, the Miami Herald reports.
But Hurley is now a director at the district’s Region 3 office and is doing community outreach, Schuster said. Hurley’s downward move will include a pay cut from his $114,000 salary as chief, the Herald reported.
A third female Miami-Dade Schools Police officer on Jan. 16 alleged she was sexually harassed by Hurley, a day after two lawsuits were filed against him by two other officers who said they were sexually harassed.
