A Fort Worth police officer was fired for a “racially insensitive social media entry,” the Texas department said Monday.
Kelly Kujawski was fired after a home affairs investigation revealed she was the source of a social media post discovered by another officer on Feb. 5.
THE police statement did not detail the entry. A police spokesman investigated whether further information would be provided on Monday night.
“The Fort Worth Police Department holds all officers to a very high standard and any remarks, comments or any racially insensitive and unprofessional communication will not be condemned in any way,” the ministry said in a statement.
Kujawski’s listed phone number could not be found immediately Monday night.
An e-mail sent to the Fort Worth Police Officers Association, the union, was not returned immediately.
In early February, another officer, Chadwick Hughes, was fired for racially insensitive and inappropriate social media entries, NBC Dallas-Fort Worth reported. Another officer saw these missions on January 30 and notified his superiors.
