A Tallahassee Police Department sergeant is on administrative leave after a social media posting targeting local Black Lives Matter protesters as a “mob of thugs” and criminals and taking aim at a mural painted on Gaines Street.
TPD Chief Lawrence Revell provided a statement that the officer, confirmed by the Tallahassee Democrat as Sgt.
Gavin Larremore, was put on administrative leave this week after the posting last week.
"Over the weekend, I was made aware of a questionable social media post by a member of the Tallahassee Police Department," he wrote in a statement.
TPD officials declined to name the officer, citing Florida law that bars the release of identifying information of officers who are the subject of internal affairs reviews.
