TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - One of the eight Tucson Police officers who were fired because of their connection to the massage parlor investigation is now back at work.

Officer Vincent Valenzuela has to complete a 40-hour suspension before returning back to work at TPD, said Lane Mandle, city of Tucson spokeswoman.

Valenzuela allegedly tampered with police computers and had a personal relationship with a parlor operator.

He petitioned the Civil Service Commission to get his job back and it was granted last Friday.
