NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) -- The New Albany Police Department chief, Todd Bailey, has requested the Indiana State Police to conduct a review of the NAPD after an officer presented a list of grievances to the Merit Commission Meeting in March.
Patrol officer Laura Schook presented the commission with allegations of officers falsifying comp time and inappropriate conduct, in March, and asked them to coduct an independent review in May.
The allegations are of potential criminal acts by certain NAPD officers, according to New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan.
“I want to ensure that our department is running efficiently and with integrity, and that is why I have asked for this third party inquiry,” Police Chief Todd Bailey said.
“I support the action taken by Chief Bailey--this is the right thing to do,” Gahan said. “Once the review is completed, we will then determine the appropriate course of action.”
