Chief Hardiman:

How is it that so many of your Department’s most problematic officers end up in the Special Crimes Unit? I’m reading through the various complaints regarding Mr. Gripps, particularly those from other officers alleging that he made ‘inappropriate comments’ towards them. It’s clear that Mr. Gripps’s previous two day suspension did little to curb this behavior.

I suggest you remind him of the Department’s sexual harassment policy and, going forward, consequences for violating that policy will result in much more severe disciplinary action.
