TPD lieutenant's demotion reversed

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The demotion of Diana Lopez has been reversed.

Tucson's Civil Service Commission voted on Wednesday to reinstate Lopez to lieutenant. She was demoted to the rank of sergeant in late 2012 after she took provocative videos and photos. Those ended up on the cell phone of an officer with whom she was in a relationship.

Police claimed Lopez violated several regulations but a judge later found TPD didn't have clear regulations that applied in this case.
