Oakland Police Dept.Nine Oakland police officers have been disciplined in the wake of an investigation into what officials called "racist and sexist" posts on social media, the mayor's office said Friday.

An independent third-party investigation began in January after Oakland Police Department officials learned of an Instagram account with "deeply offensive content," according to a statement issued Friday by Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff's office.

Investigators seized more than 140 work phones. The investigation revealed that a former Oakland police officer created the Instagram account shortly after he was fired for violating department policy, the mayor's office said.
