I heard on the news that an 8th member of the police department has been suspended administratively, not for something criminal but for something else related to the 7 officers. Want to bet it was someone who was either very lax about reviewing overtime reports (incompetence) or was intentionally ignoring it for these guys (which could end up being a criminal indictment for aiding in defraduing the city).
Yah think DiNozzo?
And I am pretty much sure there will be a reverse flow up the chain of command as the investigation progresses.
Now I don't know about BCPD and its pay accounting methods. But where I worked, your section sergeant had to sign off on your activity record, then passed that to and accounting officer who signed off, then depending (like outrageous overtime) the chief had to review and sign off before passing it onto to the check cutters.
I would imagine that there more than a few that are sweating it right now.
Bottom line and obvious to me. In very simple terms, How does an officer nearly make 1/2 or more of his base salary in OT AND NO ONE NOTICES???? Or is this yet another corruption pimple that has come up that has been part of the BCPD makeup for years.
I unfortunately, I think that last sentence is all too true.
