ABC News' John Schriffen and Anthony Castellano report:
A Miami-Dade County police sergeant and two officers have been fired, while three others have been suspended, for allegedly blowing off emergency dispatch calls, officials said.
Authorities launched an internal police investigation into the Kendall District police squad in 2010. Sgt. Jennifer Gonzalez and officers Dario Socarras and Jose Huerta have been fired while officers Jeffrey Price, Fabian Owens and Ivan Tomas were stripped of their badges, officials said. The three fired employees have appealed to get their jobs back.
Police say they secretly watched and videotaped the officers' allegedly shopping and visiting family outside the police district while on the clock.
"The idea of not going to a call honestly never crosses your mind," James Loftus, a former Miami-Dade police director, said. "That's not so much about being a bad cop, that's about being a bad human being."
Investigators said they also tracked the officers' movements using GPS devices in their vehicles.
