NORTH BALTIMORE - A village police officer has resigned following an investigation into his alleged misconduct while on duty.
Police Chief Allan Baer said the incident occurred in August and September, but village officials did not find out about it until last Thursday.
Once informed of the incident, Baer said the village began conducting an investigation, at which point the officer resigned immediately.
The incident stems from an allegation of misconduct of the officer and another village employee while on duty. The other village employee, Baer said, was not found to be in violation.
The police chief declined to elaborate on the alleged misconduct, but said the officer had been with the department for three years and is a veteran law enforcement officer.
Baer discussed the resignation following an executive session by village council to discuss personnel at the conclusion of its meeting Tuesday.
"The job that is being done by the officers of the North Baltimore Police Department is fantastic. Overall, crime is way down. But stuff likes this definitely casts a bad shadow," Baer said.
"But I want the citizens of the village to know they are still receiving great service from our officers," he said.
