Metro Nashville Police Officer Candace Steen, who was assigned to West End Middle School as a School Resource Officer was decommissioned on April 4th, after a complaint was received from a school administrator, who reported that Officer Candace Steen was selling a ‘concoction of alcohol mixed with other ingredients’ to school staff while in uniform and on-duty during the school day.
It is unknown what actions were taken against the school staff that bought the alcoholic ‘concoction’. A spokesperson for Metro Schools was not immediately aware of the situation as of Thursday afternoon. We will update with a statement from Metro Schools as it becomes available.
Officer Candace Steen is presently assigned to a “desk job” at the North Precinct, per a police spokesperson, however multiple sources tell Scoop: Nashville her only duty so far has been to sit at the desk day. MNPD’s Office of Professional Accountability is conducing the investigation.
