The six UCPD officers who had been investigated for falsifying reports of their locations were fired Tuesday, as first reported by the Mercury News.

The officers had been on paid administrative leave since Oct. 31, and had an appeal hearing in March regarding the investigation. According to the Mercury News, the officers were found to be spending time in Evans Hall’s math library when they had previously reported that they were patrolling elsewhere on campus.

The Mercury News also reported that the officers were administratively charged with lying, and that the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office did not charge the officers with time theft.
