A Savannah-Chatham Metro Police officer has been fired for soliciting sex while on duty.

According to internal affairs investigators, Officer Harold Moore responded to an ad on Craigslist and asked someone if they wanted to perform sexual acts with an on-duty cop.

Moore admitted he was working while he sent the emails, but he told investigators he did nothing wrong because he didn't actually perform the act, only asked for it, according to documents on the investigation.

Ultimately, he was fired for violating the department's oath of office, ethics and conduct, according to the file.

The investigator told him he was on city time and that his emails identified him as a police officer, according to the file.

Police said Moore appealed his termination. Police spokesman Julian Miller said Moore's firing was upheld.

WTOC reached out to Moore, but he did not want to comment.
