BPD Officers Suspended in Sex Scandal
Q2 reports that three Billings police officers– who admitted having sex on city property with a civilian employee of the department– were given either one or two week suspensions without pay, according to a Wednesday press release from Police Chief Rich St. John.
St. John did not release the names of the three patrol officers, all males with roughly eight to 10 years experience on the force, but he said the woman they had sexual relations with was Rawlyn Strizich, who was fired in February after confessing that she stole oxycodone pills and other prescription painkillers from the department’s evidence locker, according to a report by Last Best News.
Strizich was a clerk in the department’s City Hall offices at the time of the incidents. She subsequently transferred to the department’s evidence locker on Midland Road in 2016.
