PROVIDENCE -

Providence police have taken action against an uniformed officer who appeared in a photo to be sleeping in her cruiser while at a paid detail.

Police wouldn't discuss what happened to the officer, and only said the officer has been disciplined in accordance with the Law Enforcement Officer's Bill of Rights.

Police told the NBC 10 I-Team the photo of the officer was making its way around Facebook and Instagram.

The picture was taken Sunday afternoon in the city's south side at the corners of Broad and Early streets. A time stamp on the phone shows it's 2:18 p.m.

The officer was on a paid detail at Broad Street for an event that was going on at the time.
