Corrupt DC-area cops and businesses indicted

Chief is "outraged at the disgraceful conduct demonstrated by these officers, who tarnished our badge for their own greed"

GREENBELT, Md. — Prince George's County's police chief reacted to the federal indictments against three of his department's officers Monday.

"I am outraged at the disgraceful conduct demonstrated by these officers, who tarnished our badge for their own greed and personal gain. We applaud the U.S. attorney's office and the FBI for their efforts to clean our department from the outside, while we continue to clean from the inside. Since the beginning of my administration, I have terminated officers and employees for misconduct. We will continue to work with our federal law enforcement partners to address the problem of misconduct - in fact, an Internal Affairs sergeant from our agency is part of the FBI anti-corruption task force that investigated these officers. The majority of our officers are hardworking men and women who put their lives on the line every day in service to our community; we rely on the public trust and will not tolerate even one employee who breaches the oath of office," stated Chief of Police Roberto Hylton.
