The Phoenix Fire Department is now facing accusations of child sex abuse.
According to a news release from the Phoenix Police Department, two officers from the department’s Child Protection Unit are under investigation for their alleged involvement in a child sex ring.
Phoenix police officers were also allegedly involved in the sexual exploitation of a 14-year-old boy, and one of the officers was allegedly involved with a 13-year old boy.
The investigation is ongoing.
The news release says the officers involved in this case were named as Chief Greg Baugh and Sgt. Eric Jarrell.
Both men are on paid administrative leave and have been placed on administrative leave.
The release says investigators are still working to determine whether the officers were in on the operation.
The investigation began after a 15-year time-frame came to light, which led to the discovery of a second, 10-year period of time that had occurred between July 2, 2015 and May 17, 2017.
The second alleged case involved a 15 year-old girl.
Investigators say the child sex network began in the summer of 2015 and continued into May of 2017.
A total of 10 victims have been identified and the investigation has been ongoing.
