Police Chief James Ryan is expected to receive today a complete report from the Illinois State Police concerning their investigation of a Forest Park police officer who was under investigation for an alleged rape.
Earlier this month the Cook County State’s Attorneys office met with Ryan to inform him that no charges would be brought against the officer. But the officer is now facing the possibility of sanctions imposed by the village. Whether any department policies were violated will be determined by Ryan and the Village Attorney, Michael Durkin.
“The investigator contacted me last week and said that she would have the complete report to me by Wednesday morning and I will deliver a copy to Mike Durkin on Wednesday afternoon,” Ryan said at Monday night’s village council meeting.
Ryan was responding to a question posed by Village Commissioner Marty Telallian, who requested an update on the village’s internal review. Telalian’s inquiry marked the council’s first public discussion of the allegation since the complaint was filed in mid August.
Ryan did not give an estimate of how long it will take to complete the investigation.
