According to the York County Sheriff’s Department, One Sergeant and one Deputy have been terminated, two more Sergeants were suspended without pay for two weeks, a Lieutenant has been demoted to master Deputy II and a captain was suspended without pay for two weeks after an investigation discovered six deputies engaged in sexual conduct while on duty.

After receiving an anonymous complaint, York County Sheriff Kevin Tolson ordered the Office of Professional Standards to conduct an internal investigation into the allegations.  Tolson said the results of the investigation were very troubling and cast a dark cloud over the York County Sheriff’s Office and its reputation as a professional organization.

Much of the improper conduct occurred before Tolson became Sheriff, which was taken into consideration.
