An Akron Lieutenant officer of 23 years is currently suspended for 90 days for allegedly having sexual relations while on duty. Edward Patalon is under an internal investigation and lost his rank.
Akron police department is trying their best to keep this out of the media. Not a lot of information has been released. The Akron police department is currently hiring and this is not a good look for the department. Akron’s police department is also trying to regain the trust of the community after reports found paperwork and other important information was NOT being handled properly by the police department.
An official statement was released as well;
“When this officer engaged in this unacceptable behavior, he did not hold himself to this standard, and his actions were not in alignment with the principles and values of our agency,” Chief Steve Mylett said in a statement. “As a direct result of his actions, he was held accountable and severely disciplined.”
I’ll keep everyone updated as this story unfolds.
