MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami’s police chief is taking action against officers caught speeding.

Chief Manuel Orosa reportedly plans to take disciplinary measures against 36 cops caught driving at speeds of more than 100 miles per hour while off duty, according to the Sun-Sentinel.

The officers will be given reprimands and suspensions; one or more officers will reportedly be fired.

Officer Fausto Lopez, who led a Florida Highway Patrol trooper on a high speed chase on the Florida Turnpike last October, will be suspended for a month and lose his take home car for three months.

Additionally, 40 police vehicles will be equipped with GPS devices to make sure the worst offenders slow down.

The Sun-Sentinel contributed to this report.
