Amy Walling and Jason Vansteenburgh both were on paid administrative leave while the investigation was completed.

Police Chief Frank Kitzerow recommended termination.

Jupiter Town Manager Andy Lukasik agreed Thursday, making the termination official.

The town manager has the final authority to hire and fire town employees, according to the town charter.

“The actions of Sergeants Walling and Vansteenburgh were in violation of the Town’s policies and the Police Department’s General Orders. Their behavior was unacceptable and disappointing, and does not represent the culture or organizational values of the Town of Jupiter, the Jupiter Police Department or its employees,” according to Lukasik’s letter on Thursday confirming the firings.
