Police will use computer program to track officer misconduct

April 15, 2011 |  7:53 am

GLEN A new software program will allow the Glendale Police Department to better track officer misconduct reports as the command staff continues to carry out Chief Ron De Pompa’s zero-tolerance policy.

The internal affairs tracking system — part of larger software conversion that also will track work hours and other personnel matters — will establish an early warning system for problem employees by tracking the number of reported misconducts and notifying administrators so they can intervene, said Capt. Ray Edey of the department’s Administrative Services Division.

Officials have confirmed that at least six police officers have been put on leave. City officials are investigating claims that some officers took a patrol car on a joy ride to Las Vegas and that another officer had an affair with the estranged wife of a man he arrested. Another off-duty officer was allegedly involved in a road-rage incident in Burbank.
