Jose Otero (allegedly pictured near the car), a police officer with Melbourne Police Department in Florida, has been fired after his own dashcam caught him picking up prostitutes on the job, WTSP-TV reports.
During one video-recorded pick-up, Otero stops his vehicle and a woman, who cops identified as a prostitute, hops in and they drive off. What Otero didn’t know was that, any addition to his own dashcam capturing his trysts, his fellow officers were recording his every move. During their investigation, cops interviewed four of the Janes he picked up.
They all admitted to having sex with with Otero, according to police.

In another recorded stop, Otero is shown emerging from the driver’s side of his cop car without a shirt while his Jane exited the passenger side.
The recorded stops were enough for the department to hand Otero a pink slip.
Here is more on how Otero’s dimissal went down:
At the police department, the chief held a meeting to confront the officer with the allegations. ”Officer Otero did not show up to that meeting to present any information.”
Most stunning of all is a scene where a woman gets out of the passenger side of Otero’s car and officer Otero gets out of the driver’s side with no shirt on.
Police say this went on from at least February to May.
In Otero’s termination letter, the police chief writes: “The criminal conduct uncovered during this investigation is extremely disturbing and demonstrates that you lack the proper judgment in your role as a police officer.”
Otero has been slapped with seven misdemeanors in addition to being kicked off of the force. Check out a news report below on Otero’s alleged prostitute pick-ups.
