A Port St. Lucie animal control officer is suing the city after her supervisor wrote a public memo revealing the officer’s use of a prescription drug. The supervisor found legal anti-anxiety pills in the officer’s purse while searching her work truck for a receipt related to a wayward-dog case.
The department acknowledges the supervisor should have asked the officer to help with the search. Still, the agency counseled the officer for failing to follow the city’s substance-abuse policy, which requires employees to notifyif they will be working under the influence of legal drugs that could interfere with performance or judgment.
The officer said she notified the department about the medication five years ago. She is pursuing a complaint with the EEOC concerning privacy violations and discrimination.
