North Bay Village Cop Accused Of Getting Hair Done on Duty
For North Bay Village Police Sgt. Amy
Suarez, getting her hair done is more important than patrolling the
streets of the city she is sworn to protect. So claims Crime Watch
volunteer Amy Lee, who alleges she saw Suarez, in full uniform and
on-duty, getting her hair washed and flat-ironed at a beauty salon
laid off because of budget cuts," Lee tells Riptide. "When you
put on a uniform, I believe you take a moral and ethical
responsibility to keep the streets safe when you are on the clock."
Lee complained to City Manager Dennis Kelly via email. He passed along her complaint to the village's acting police chief Lt. James McCready, who tells Riptide that he gave Suarez permission to take time off from her shift to go to the beauty salon.
