On Tuesday August 18, 2009, the PLEA Board directed that a letter of concern be sent to the local FBI Field office as well as the FBI’s national office in Washington D.C. to express concerns over an inordinate amount of EEOC violations pending against police supervisors.
PLEA feels that it is improper to send supervisory personnel out of state to train for extended periods of time at the FBI’s National Academy when they have multiple EEO complaints pending against them.
PLEA felt it important to explain the restrictions that are placed upon rank and file officers when they are under investigation i.e. assigned to desk duty, assigned to home, not allowed to transfer, denied overtime, suspension of off duty work privileges etc. While rank and file officers are punished the moment they are placed under investigation, police managers under investigation are allowed to attend training at prestigious out of state institutions paid for by the city.
