Investigation Into Alleged Inappropriate Conduct By Members Of Burnett County Sheriff’s Department

Monday, July 2nd, 2012 at 11:10 am

Alleged inappropriate conduct by several members of the Burnett County Sheriff’s Department is under investigation by the county district attorney’s office and the state Department of Criminal Investigation, Sheriff Dean Roland said in a statement issued last week.

The investigations stem from an allegation of a sheriff’s department member’s alleged involvement in two domestic abuse incidents which occurred in 2011.

The allegations of domestic abuse by the involved member and subsequent actions taken by other department members were brought to the attention of sheriff’s department back in April of 2012. These allegations were believed to be significant enough that Burnett County District Attorney Bill Norine was immediately notified.

We will ask Sheriff Dean Roland for his comments tomorrow during the Burnett County Sheriff’s Report.
