Officer Faces Review for Actions With Women

Associated Press

January 13, 2011

CARMEL, Ind. — A police merit board will review disciplinary charges against a central Indiana officer accused of acting inappropriately with women following traffic stops.

Carmel Police Chief Tim Green issued a statement Wednesday saying his department’s merit board will review charges against Officer Greg Park next Tuesday. Park has been suspended with pay since Nov. 18.

Park’s attorney, Robert Turner, tells WTHR-TV the suspension appears to be a “knee-jerk reaction.” He says Park has no history of serious discipline.

Turner says a school principal filed one complaint and another came from the mother of a student who received a traffic warning. The student’s mother says Park held her hand too long when they shook hands.

Turner says Park also might have discussed another officer’s case and that information got someone fired.

    Sounds like he needs to stay away from the school zones , shaking hands with a citizen sounds like he is a courteous officer. The N.O.I. about about another officer's case, he would have to have been told/ordered not to talk about an ongoing investigation.

    What! You shake hands with a female and she tells her Mommy she though he held it too long so they suspend him! What the hell is wrong with people? Did he say anything inappropriate? Did they have a camera of video of this event? Good God is that all it takes to get an Officer suspended is a second hand report that he held a handshake too long? The Chief should have told her he would speak to the Officer and just tell the Officer not to shake hands again and then drop it.
