Houston, TX – Stacey Suro, 42, faces dismissal from the Houston Police Department for posting nude photos of herself online. Sgt. Suro has been on the force for 20 years and is a single mom. She was suspended after posting the allegedly racy photos on the Model Mayhem website and is currently under investigation by internal affairs, KRPC-TV reports.
Suro reportedly uploaded more than 100 pictures to the popular modeling website, which serves as forum for both professional and aspiring models and photographers. The New York Daily News reports that some of the photos of the Houston police officer include poses in sexually suggestive positions and with bondage gear. It is not known if the bondage photos include her department issued handcuffs as props.
The police officer’s nude photos and her profile have now been removed from ModelMayhem.Com. According to the New York Daily News, Suro’s online profile noted she was a model for hire. Once word got out that a Houston police officer posed nude and nearly nude in suggestive poses, she was relieved from duty pending an investigation into the matter.
Police department policy reportedly states that staff shall exhibit professional conduct at all times and shall not engage in any activity that would degrade or bring disrespect upon the employee or the department. Houston officers are also mandated to disclose any jobs outside of the department. It is currently unclear if Stacey Suro notified her superiors about attempting to get modeling gigs. The single mom is a member of the police union, but according to KRPC-TV, she has not yet requested legal representation from the advocacy group.
