Judge orders city to release some documents related to Metro Police Explorer Program scandal

The investigation, which was completed in 2018, began after members of the program accused two former officers of sexual abuse.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A judge has ordered the city to release some documents in their investigation related to the Louisville Metro Police’s Explorer scandal.

The investigation, which was completed in 2018, began after members of the program accused two former officers of sexual abuse. Former U.S. Attorney Kerry Harvey conducted the investigation and concluded that there were mistakes made, "no massive cover-up” in the senior ranks of LMPD. 

At the time of the report's release, certain portions were redacted. 

This motion comes at the same time Metro Council President David James filed a resolution for the documents to be released.

“Because I think it's way beyond time for the city to have settled this case. So being as transparent as we possibly can, with the plaintiffs and trying to take care of the victims, is what that resolution is all about,” he said.

The city has 30 days to produce the documents.
