DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A report says Detroit police officers conducted surveillance on the president of a commission that sets department policy and conducted searches for a new police chief.
Details of the report from the city’s Office of Inspector General were reported earlier this week by MLive.com. The report follows an investigation prompted by complaints from Jerome Warfield, who led the Board of Police Commissioners at the time.READ MORE: Michigan Approves $824M In Incentives For GM's EV, Battery Plants
The report says the surveillance was ordered by Chester Logan, who then was interim chief. Warfield complained about possible surveillance in May, when he was followed by unmarked cars with tinted windows.READ MORE: Grand Haven School Official Pleads No Contest To Embezzlement
The report says officers were ordered to follow Warfield at least six times in the first four months of 2013, although it doesn’t identify Logan’s suspected motive.
Police Chief James Craig received a preliminary report in September. He agreed with the Office of the Inspector General that police resources were wasted.MORE NEWS: Lawsuit Filed Against University Of Michigan Days After $490M Settlement Of Sexual Abuse Claims
