Acting Police Commissioner Clapprood Informs Mayor Sarno of Strengthening Policies, Seeking a Hearing Before the Community Police Hearing Board Regarding High School of Commerce Incident and Reviewing New Evidence on Past Incidents of Misconduct

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “Acting Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood has informed me she will be reviewing new evidence received involving past incidents of misconduct to consider whether new charges could lead to terminations. In addition, she has strengthened policies for handling disruptive conduct in the lobby of the Police Department. And finally she has arranged for our Community Police Hearing Board (CPHB) to hold a hearing to review the event at the High School of Commerce.”

Acting Police Commissioner Cheryl Clapprood said, “Police officers, who will never be productive officers for our City, just bring down morale of the Department and compromise the trust of our community.”
