Police chief moves to purge reinstated cops


By Allison Klein

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Police Chief Cathy L. Lanier said this morning she is now trying to get rid of the more than 20 officers she has rehired after they were terminated for misconduct.

The officers — who were fired for such offenses as lying, falsifying documents, double-dipping and fist-fighting on the job — had been reinstated after the department repeatedly missed deadlines in disciplinary proceedings.
