A married Connecticut police officer has been placed on administrative leave after it was discovered he has appeared in pornographic videos.

Paul Cavalier, an officer with the East Haven Police Department, was identified on a video posted 10 months ago to the website. The videos were discovered in recent weeks.

Police chief Edward Lennon released a statement in response to Cavalier’s leave, noting the videos were an ‘off-duty matter.’

‘We have been made aware of an off-duty matter involving officer Paul Cavalier,’ Lennon said.

‘He was placed on administrative leave and is the subject of an internal affairs investigation, consistent with the collective bargaining agreement. This is a personnel matter, and as such, we will have no additional comment.’

A reporter for WFSB spoke with Cavalier before he was placed on leave, and he declined to comment.

The department does not explicitly refer to pornography in its code of conduct, according to the New Haven Register.

Though it is not mentioned, it does say that officers are prohibited from viewing or sharing pornographic content while on duty or while using town equipment.

‘I will keep my private life unsullied as an example to all,’ the code reads.

Cavalier was sworn-in as an officer at the East Haven Police Department on May 7, 2021, according to a Facebook post.

In another post, Cavalier is seen with his wife. There is no indication at this time that she was involved with the videos in question. 

Before working at East Haven, the West Haven native previously worked for the New Haven Police Department.
