“RICHMOND — A Richmond police school resource officer has been placed on leave as an investigation of officers who allegedly had sex with a teenager appears to change course.
Chief Allwyn Brown, in an email sent to city leaders, said Officer Jerred Tong was placed on paid administrative leave on Thursday, pending the outcome of an investigation. He had already been reassigned from school duty.
“We understand the heightened anxiety that many are experiencing, and we’re working hard to move things along as quickly as we can,” Brown wrote.
Five Richmond officers have been named in the probe, but Tong is the first Richmond officer to be relieved of duty as part of the ever-widening sexual misconduct scandal involving a woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. Guap has claimed to have sex with about 30 officers in various Bay Area police departments, some while she was underage, which would be a crime, and with others who gave her confidential information or paid her.”
