LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- “Officer Wood maintains his innocence of any criminal activity whatsoever,” says Steve Schroering, attorney.
Shroering is the attorney representing Officer Brandon Wood. Sources have confirmed to WHAS11 Wood is connected to an investigation into the youth explorer program designed to help teens interested in law enforcement.
Louisville Metro Police posted a statement about the investigation on their Facebook page that says in part:
"Our Public Integrity Unit received information that necessitated an investigation into an officer's behavior surrounding our Youth Explorer Program."
But Schroering says he cannot tell us why Wood's being investigated.
“It's an ongoing investigation right now. Other than that, I can't give any details about what the investigations are. In fact, the details I have are very limited,” Schroering says.
Schroering says Officer Wood is currently on administrative leave while the investigation continues.
