Officer at Salt Lake City PrideAn officer with the Salt Lake City Police Department has been put on paid administrative leave after reportedly refusing an assignment at this weekend’s Salt Lake City pride pride parade, KSL News reports:

“We don’t tolerate bias and bigotry in the department, and assignments are assignments,” said department spokeswoman Lara Jones.

The officer is on paid administrative leave as the internal affairs unit reviews the situation, Jones said. He had been given a traffic control and public safety assignment.

The department has provided services at the Utah Pride Festival since its inception, as well as a host of other community events.
