Public safety department releases misconduct report for sheriffs, ACOs

Last week, KHON2 posted misconduct reports issued by county police departments.

On Tuesday, we received a report for adult corrections officers and sheriffs.

According to the Department of Public Safety, 18 corrections officers were disciplined last year for various cases of misconduct, including a three-day suspension for erroneously releasing an inmate, a 30-day suspension for workplace violence and one officer who was fired for bringing in contraband.

Two sheriffs were disciplined last year for assault of an inmate and failing to properly manage the assault.

The difference between this report and the police reports is that it includes the names of employees that received disciplinary actions. Those who had deferred sanctions or written reprimands were not identified.
