    A female cop claims she was forced to quit her job because colleagues would not stop pestering her for sex.

    Daniela De La Ossa worked as a patrolling officer with Columbia’s National Police in Cerete, Cordoba Department. But the fuming woman has left the force following sexual harassment.

    The former officer has now filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s Office. In the report, Daniela claimed male colleagues would harass her and then accuse her of discrimination if she complained.

    She said her ranking officers humiliate her when she doesn't give in to their demands. And she reached her breaking point.

    She said: "I can't stand the workplace and sexual harassment anymore, simply because I didn't want to agree to their demands. It was easy for them to say, do it, do whatever you want with it.

    "I want to make it clear to you that I have already asked for my leave, I asked for my retirement, and I do not want to work in the National Police anymore, as a result of all the harassment with evidence that I had.

    "I don't understand why they don't leave me alone, if that's what they wanted, well they already achieved it."

    Daniela has frequently been dubbed a “hot cop” online after sharing images of herself in bikinis, sportswear and her uniform.

    After the initial harassment, she reported the officers and claimed it made things much worse. Daniela says she fears for her life as pressure increases to withdraw the complaint.

    Daniela explained: "I'm not going to do what the other police patrol officers do who are sexually harassed. I'm going to report what's happening so that corrective measures can be taken.

    "I have conversations, I have videos of everything that is happening to me, they forced me to change the reason for my retirement and state that I have new projects. I call on the President, the director of the National Police, Human Rights, the Attorney General's Office, those who defend women. Help me, I don't want to be here anymore."
