How a Shady Cop Kept Getting New Jobs—and Then Became Chief

  How a Shady Cop Kept Getting New Jobs—and Then Became Chief When Joe Klingan hired Jon Geiger to be a police officer for the tiny police department in the tiny town of Nunn, Colorado (population 500), he believed the 52-year-old was providing a complete picture of his background. Yes, Geiger—a former cop from another tiny police department in the Denver suburb of Georgetown, 120 miles away—had pleaded guilty to a harassment charge in 2018 after grabbing a man out of a holding cell and wrenching his arm behind his back. And yes, he had been decertified by the Colorado Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) board, a state agency, as a law-enforcement officer after his conviction in that case.

Thousands of police officers and hundreds of troops will be deployed across greater Sydney to help enforce new rules in eight hotspot local government areas as New South Wales desperately tries to curb growing Covid case numbers that have jumped sharply to a daily record of 239. Chief health officer Dr Jeanette Young says she is concerned that this school student Covid-19 case does not yet have any clear source.

CCC boss reminds police of their obligations to community

The statement said that the matter was now before the courts and the CCC would not comment further, but Mr MacSporran said the vast majority of Queensland police officers acted with "integrity".

He said recreational use of drugs occurred in all sectors of society and officers needed to be conscious of their obligations.

"Apart from the potential work, health and safety issues of working in a frontline policing role in the days after consuming drugs, any officer involved in this type of conduct leaves themselves open to be compromised by criminals or other associates who have the knowledge that the officer is involved in the purchasing, supplying and consuming of illegal drugs," Mr MacSporran said.

"This is a corruption risk and I urge police officers who may be considering personal drug use to consider the ramifications of engaging in illegal activity, no matter how minor or trivial they may think it is."

The officer was formally charged today at the Brisbane watch house, where they were granted bail to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on August 19.
