Brevard County, Florida - A Brevard County Sheriff's Office 9-1-1 dispatcher has been reprimanded for napping while on duty.
Documents show the woman, Hope Williams, adjusted her 9-1-1 radio console, folded her arms and put her head down to sleep while on duty just before 4 a.m. Oct. 8.

She was working the radio that dispatches for the northern part of the county at the time. Her actions "indicate that you did not merely 'doze off' but planned this action," the letter of reprimand reads. A photograph of the sleeping Williams was apparently taken, but was not released following a FLORIDA TODAY records request.

Three colleagues saw Williams sleeping and reported it wasn't the first time, according to the investigation report. One communications staffer said she had to call Williams' name twice before she woke up.

"Sleeping on duty is a severe officer safety issues [sic] and will not be tolerated," supervisor Greg Williams wrote in the letter of reprimand. "As an Assistant Supervisor, you are a role model and a leader within the communications center. This conduct sets a very poor example."

Williams was reprimanded for her substandard performance.
