"Thank You for being transparent and holding him accountable!"
Citizens are applauding after a police department in Wisconsin held one of their own accountable.
Earlier this week, a Monroe officer received unwanted attention when he was photographed parking his cruiser in a handicap spot at a Kwik Trip convenience store.
The photo made its rounds on social media and eventually made its way back to the department which, along with various complaints, prompted them to investigate the incident.
In an update today, police said their investigation found the officer in question violated the law and would be issued a parking ticket, “the same parking ticket that would have been issued to anyone else that had parked in a handicapped stall without handicapped status.”
