Investigation Into FSU Police Misconduct Closed; No Basis Found for Further Charges

December 2nd, 2014 by WCBC Radio

An external administrative and criminal investigation into allegations of misconduct by Frostburg State University Police personnel, conducted by the Combined County Criminal Investigations Unit (C3I), the Allegany County State’s Attorney’s Office and Cumberland City Police Department, has determined the allegations to be non-sustained.

The allegations came to light following the investigation of prior misconduct by a former FSU Police officer. FSU officials immediately requested assistance from an outside agency, and an administrative investigation was conducted by a ranking member of the Cumberland City Police according to the terms of the Law Enforcement Officers Bill of Rights, along with a criminal investigation by C3I and the State’s Attorney’s Office.

“We take any allegations of misconduct very seriously,” said FSU Senior Vice President Stephen Spahr. “We have an expectation of utmost professionalism from our officers at all times. The integrity and credibility of the entire force is impacted by the actions of every individual officer, so our training and procedures are designed to support those goals. We express our gratitude to our regional agencies for their assistance.”
