A Dracut police officer who worked at Dracut High School and was accused of inappropriate contact with a student has resigned.
The Dracut Police Department placed School Superintendent Sunny Nguyen on leave after Dracut Public Schools learned of allegations of inappropriate contact between Nguyen and a Dracut High School student.
Dracut Police clarified in a press release Wednesday that the student was 18, but did not say when the alleged behavior took place.
It’s unclear when the allegations were uncovered, but they were made public on Monday. Dracut Police only posted a video with Nguyen on Facebook in October 2022.
Nguyen filed a letter of resignation on Wednesday, Dracut Police said in the press release. The police are still investigating the allegations.
Nguyen has been a police officer in Dracut since May 2019. The Lowell Sun reported. He previously worked as a correctional officer in the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office and as a security guard at several health centres.
