VIDEO: Dalton officers suspended after cursing at students

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, Ga. (AP) - A pair of Dalton police officers have been suspended after a school bus surveillance camera recorded a profanity-laced speech they delivered to a group of middle school students.

The Dalton Daily Citizen (http://bit.ly/1cjNfqr ) reports two officers were addressing a group of between 20 and 50 students from Dalton Middle School Nov. 11 when they gave an expletive-laden speech to them about their behavior.

The bus driver pulled over and called police because she felt students on board were getting out of control.

Department officials say both officers were suspended for two days without pay, required to do 40 hours of community service at a local youth programs, and will undergo verbal communication training.

The department received a complaint about the incident from one of the student's parents.
