May 23, 2017



LAUREL, Miss. - The Laurel Police Department has released one of its captains.


Sources said this person took inappropriate photos, and others have seen them.


Laurel Police Officer, Cpt. Tommy Cox said, “We’re not going to make any comments on any specific complaints. And this is out of respect to an officer and this is also out of respect to the complainant. I’m just going to say as a department, any time a complaint is made against an officer, we have our procedures in order that investigations may be conducted. And if warranted in those situations, disciplinary action or other would be carried out. And that’s for any complaint.”


Chief Tyrone Stewart said the person has been let go and the situation is under investigation.
