Patrol officer Laura Schook, who says she will have served exactly 19 years with the agency today, presented her grievances, for a second time, to the New Albany Police Merit Commission Thursday night.

With NAPD Chief Sherri Knight sitting alongside the merit commission members, Schook approached a lectern and made the following statement.

“In March of this year, I stood before you, and I advised you of several problems occurring within this department, including possible serious criminal conduct by members of this department; an alleged, corrupt police administration; and a facilitation of a discriminative, hostile work environment.

“After this was brought to your attention, the alleged offenders were allowed to investigate themselves. I am asking this honorable commission to consider asking the state police to take this investigation over so it can be conducted in an uncorrupt, unbiased manner. Thanks for considering my request.”

From what I've heard from friends in the department, it is more of problem of administrative incompetence than corruption.

Now the Chief want's to be reassigned.



In a letter to New Albany Mayor Jeff Gahan, Chief Knight stated that "it would be in the best interests of her family and herself to transition out of her position as Chief and resume responsibilities within the Detective division."
