Sharing is Caring!

A group of high ranking Washington, D.C., police officers, including the current chief, shielded 21 officers from termination for criminal misconduct, according to an investigation conducted by Reveal and WAMU/DCist.

Reveal‘s report is based on internal documents obtained from a ransomware attack that, according to The Associated Press, targeted D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) in April.

Per those documents, between 2009 and 2019, the MPD’s Disciplinary Review Division sought termination for at least 24 officers accused of criminal misconduct. In all but three of those cases, an Adverse Action Panel made up of three high-ranking officers made sure the accused kept their jobs. One member of that panel, Robert J. Contee, has served as chief of the MPD since the beginning of 2021.
