Internal investigation finds Hartford police sergeant, lieutenant violated code of conduct

Hartford

An internal investigation has found that a Hartford police sergeant and a lieutenant had violated the department’s code of conduct.

On Wednesday, officials said the investigation found that Sgt. Andrew Rodney and Lt. Paul West violated the department’s code of conduct “in multiple ways.”

“We’ve completed an investigation of the allegations made last year, and I am confident the investigation’s thoroughness will help demonstrate that the Hartford Police Department does not tolerate harassment of any kind,” said Chief David Rosado. “As an organization our mission is to serve and protect our community and our most vulnerable residents in particular. We can only be successful if we’re a welcoming organization that fosters a climate of respect between our employees, and that work is ongoing on a daily basis.”

The infractions listened in the investigation include two counts of failure to properly supervise subordinates or to prefer disciplinary action, or to take other appropriate action, as well as three counts of failure of a supervisor to make proper notifications.

The investigation came about after allegations were made against Sgt. Rodney.

Following a hearing process, both officers could face unpaid suspension and demotion.
