Police officer suspended for allegedly asking for cash during traffic stop

Susan Svrluga Reporter covering higher education for the Grade Point blog November 10 at 1:49 PM An officer has been suspended from the Prince George's County Police Department after allegations that the officer asked for cash in exchange for leniency during a traffic stop. Two separate incidents were reported in the aftermath of the day, and after that, they were quoted by the police. "I find this extraordinarily disturbing. … Provided true, this is quite simply a crime, "Chief Henry P. Stawinski III said in a news conference Saturday. The case will be reviewed by the Prince George County State Attorney's Office. He released few details of the allegations because the investigation just launched. But they are aware of their appeal for people to call 301-772-4795 if they were aware of such behavior. "I want to know that I'm aware of this," he said, adding that the incident allegedly happened several weeks ago. Stawinski said that he is in need of payment in the past. When the investigation is complete, he said, he would release all of the information. "I am asking for your patience. I am asking for your trust. We have allegations of an official conduct themselves in a way that would undermine the public trust, "he said. "That does not represent us."
