Officer Profiles

These "officer profiles" are an effort to keep a log of abuses of power of individual officers. If there is an officer that should be listed here, if a correction to the info we have needs to be made, or if you'd like to report abuses of power by a particular officer, contact us or submit a report of police abuse to CopWatch with the online form.

*Please note that officers often rotate around- their position and the agency they work for may change, but we still want to document what they have done- as a cop, detective, coroner, etc.
