After a GPS monitor on Orlando police Officer Paul Nixon's patrol car showed that he routinely left his post while on duty and logged hours he didn't work, he was fired from the police force this month. Nixon was hired in September 2011 and has been disciplined twice in the past amid similar accusations, according to a notice of termination letter delivered to Nixon on Dec. 8. Nixon violated several department policies when he failed to answer calls for service in a timely manner and when he lied and said he was working at his post with the Downtown Community Policing Division at least seven times between March 28 and June 24 when he was really as far as 16 miles away, the letter said.
