Westminster FD Employee Accused of Sexual Harassment

An employee of the Westminster Fire Department has been placed on unpaid leave following allegations of sexual harassment. The employee is unnamed, and an investigation began immediately into the allegations when they were brought forward, officials said. The employee was placed on leave last Wednesday, according to officials.

This investigation is on the heels of another one that happened about a year ago. The county spent about $7,000 on an outside investigator to look into allegations of misconduct and harassment against an official with the Westminster Fire Department.
