On May 17, Bowling Green State University Police Chief Monica Moll accidently discharged her service weapon while dismantling it for cleaning. The incident occurred in the department’s roll call room following a firearms training session off campus. No one was injured.
The University has investigated the incident and Moll will receive a letter of reprimand that will remain in her personnel file for one year. This is consistent with University policy and standard protocol for this type of incident.
According to the investigation, the trigger must be pulled to dismantle the weapon and Moll had inadvertently left a live round of ammunition in the chamber. The pistol was aimed downward and away from anyone when it discharged. Two other officers were in room.
“Chief Moll is keenly aware of the seriousness of this incident and the importance of safety,” said Sheri Stoll, Vice President for Finance and Administration and Moll’s supervisor. “I have complete confidence in the chief, and I’m certain that she and the entire department will learn from the mistake and operate more safely as a result.”
