Termination recommended after a special police officer found guilty of giving false information to a police officer


Termination recommended after a special police officer found guilty of giving false information to a police officer
NYC Administration for Children’s Services v Toro, OATH Index No. #1023/12 and OATH Index #1024/12

Two Administration for Children’s Services [ACS] special officers were found to have made false statements to supervisors and to an investigator regarding their involvement in connection with the traffic stop of a relative and former ACS special officer. It was alleged that a photocopy of an unauthorized ACS identification card was displayed to a NY/NJ Port Authority police officer in the course of the traffic stop.

One of the special officers at the scene of the traffic stop displayed his ACS ID card and badge and falsely told a Port Authority police officer that his relative would be getting a new ACS ID when his problems at work were resolved.

Due to the severity of the misconduct, OATH Administrative Law Judge Faye Lewis recommended termination of employment for one of the special officers, the brother of the former officer, despite the lack of his having any prior disciplinary record. The officer resigned shortly after the decision was issued.

Judge Lewis did not recommend a penalty to be imposed on the other special officer as his employment was terminated by ACS in connection with a different matter.
