Heavily pregnant Kentucky police officer told she must stay on PATROL or take unpaid leave
A pregnant police officer from Florence, Kentucky, has been told she has to stay on patrol during her pregnancy - or take unpaid leave and lose her health benefits.
Lyndi Trischler, who became a Florence Police officer in 2012, last year gave birth to a daughter and was given office work so she could cope with the phyiscal strains.
However, for this pregnancy the department says they are unable to move her position because of a change in the rules so she'll have to stay on patrol or take the time as unpaid leave
If Trischler stays on unpaid leave, by the time she gives birth to her son she will no longer have medical insurance which is a problem because her son suffers from a rare bone disorder, reports WFSB.
