RICHLAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Richland Police Chief Russell James has confirmed that two of his officers were terminated this week for sexual misconduct. 

Neither of the officers are facing charges at this time, and RPD is not releasing their names. 

According to a Facebook post by the Richland Police Department, the misconduct was discovered during a separate investigation and brought to the Chief’s attention.

No criminal charges have been filed against the officers, and there is no evidence that supports charges being filed at this time, according to the post.

"Sometimes officers succumb and fall in the darkness; but most stand and fight the darkness," said Chief WR James, in the post. "We need and ask for your prayerful support. Our only help and hope is in the grace and strength of The Lord Jesus Christ!"

They were officially terminated Wednesday after the Board of Aldermen met Tuesday to make the decision.
