All that for only $600.00, a lost career and jail time?????? :shocked: Sounds like she's done this before. She isn't a police officer, she's a perp carrying a badge..:steamed:...Good riddance to her......

IndyGunFreak 03-08-2011 12:44

I can't believe she was suspended w/ pay. Frankly, Taxpayers in DC should be outraged by that. I'm not saying every time an Officer gets suspended, their pay should be yanked, but this would seem to be a clear reason to suspend w/o pay (assuming the article is accurate).

This happens more often than you think.

4949shooter 03-08-2011 15:59

Yeah. My agency would have suspended her without pay.

janice6 03-08-2011 16:02

She's going to claim "that she was trapping the criminal in an illegal act" and going to arrest him.


(What else could she say?)

Me neither, send to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $200!

M1Garand 03-08-2011 16:33

That is just so not worth it.

Patchman 03-08-2011 16:41

Lock her up and throw away the key.

Vigilant 03-08-2011 17:02

Makes you wonder about their hiring standards, eh?

The only way you get suspended without pay in my agency is if you commit a felony.

I suspect that after hearing a few accounts of the fun and games some female COs have enjoyed in my little neighborhood, your own back yard might not look so bad. And then there is the occasional story of a gay male in a male prison camp. Makes me mad enough to eat a skunk just thinking about it. And we wear the same uniform.

There most definitely is such thing as a thug with a badge.

MarcDW 03-08-2011 19:28

I would have accepted higher standards from DC PD!

She will reap one way or another. I would imagine if even she is not convicted her fellows would no longer want to remain her fellows. If she did as reported I would expect for a conviction to follow and her sentence to stick. But, I'm not from D.C.

I'm gonna speculate it is more of a paid administrative leave pending investigation kind of thing. Hard to justify not paying her until she is convicted or makes some admissions which would be indicative of a violation of law or policy; after all "innocent until proven guilty" applies.

We had a sworn officer at our station a few years ago who, when he was dealing with prisoner's property, was suspected of stealing money.

One day while walking the beat, a 'member of the public' handed him a 'found' wallet with $120 inside.

A week later, after the wallet hadn't been placed in the property store, a search warrant warrant was executed on his home and car. The empty wallet was found in his car.

During the search of his house a credit card was found. He had stolen it, along with another wallet, from a house when he had attended a domestic incident!

Even in Court he claimed he found the wallet in his back yard and said it must have been thrown there from the walkway behind his house. Miles from the place it was stolen from in another part of the city.

He could not explain subsequent attempts to use it though.

His mug shot shows him in a uniform shirt with shoulder patches, minus the epaulettes.

Procedures for dealing with prisoner's cash were changed a little bit after that.

3 more DC cops arrested for trying to buy stolen electronics while on duty. Sad sad sad. We once had a guy claim an officer stole $400 from him. Like we'd risk losing our job for $400. Went back and looked the the video and he only had $40 when we searched his pockets.

Some of the stuff cops get in trouble for... boggles the mind. Rolling a DB was a good one that was getting a bit common here. Then they admit to it later... even though the vic won't give a statement.:whistling:

I believe that's in the LEOBR.

They do that so the person can never fight to get any backpay, once he/she is fired. Generally it's a GOOD sign that an officer will eventually be cleared in my agency, when they are suspended without pay (less serious offenses like certain policy violations). Once they are reinstated, they almost always then receive 100% of lost wages. If it's a fire-able offense, the officer usually keeps their pay until termination.

Three D.C. officers arrested in another police undercover sting

By Paul Duggan
Washington Post Staff Writer

Three D.C. police officers were arrested Tuesday in an undercover sting involving the purchase of supposedly stolen goods, an operation similar to one over the weekend that led to the arrest of another officer in the same police district, the department said.

The three officers, assigned to the Fourth District station in the Brightwood area of Northwest Washington, were charged with attempting to possess stolen property after they agreed to buy what they thought were stolen electronics in a sting run by the internal affairs unit, Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said at a news conference.
