In Case You Missed It: Denver Police Officers Get Little or No Punishment For Using NCIC To Stalk Women

In shockingly similar fashion, an independant report out of Denver, highlights a problem that recently came to the attention of Cedar Posts. Apparently a new CMPD hire found the National Crime Imformation Center (NCIC) as well as the North Carolina version useful in stalking one or more female victims.

Efforts to learn the name of the CMPD Officer involved and the circumstance of the rumored stalking, as well as charges and or punishment by CP and a couple members of Charlotte's mainstream media, have met the same stonewalling common with former CMPD Chief Monroe's regime. 
The bottom line is it happened, IA dealt with it and everyone is moving on. Expect the city to settle quietly with the victim shortly.
But the problem is not isolated in Charlotte or to just one rouge officer.
From Denver's ABC Affiliate and the Associate Press:
Denver police officers caught using confidential criminal databases for personal reasons get only light punishments, allowing the potentially dangerous abuse to continue, the city's independent police monitor wrote in a report released Tuesday.
The problem involves the National Crime Information Center, a database used by tens of thousands of law enforcement agencies across the country to catch criminals, recover stolen property and identify terrorism suspects. Its users seek information on stolen guns and cars, fugitives, sex offenders and other subjects.
Denver Police Department policy warns officers that they can be criminally prosecuted for using the database and its Colorado equivalent for personal reasons. But such abuses continue, in part because the light sanctions aren't enough to deter future misconduct, Independent Monitor Nicholas Mitchell wrote.
Mitchell said 25 officers have been punished for inappropriate use of the databases since 2006. But most of them received reprimands, rather than the harsher penalties some police agencies impose for the same offense. None of the 25 was charged with a crime.
The Denver cases include an officer who looked up the phone number of a female hospital employee with whom he chatted during a sex assault investigation and called her at home against her wishes. Another officer ran a man's license plate seeking information for a friend, who then began driving by the man's house and threatening him, according to the monitor's report.
A third officer who ran a man's license plate number on behalf of a tow truck driver who wanted information for personal reasons received no punishment at all after he told investigators the tow truck driver needed the information as part of her official duties.
It's unclear how widespread the problem is, but the cases show a need for stronger punishment, Mitchell said.

If im hearing this right Caldwell stalked a girl using NCIC and then sent her a picture of his junk. The rumor mill says he's prancing around with logistics until the matter is resolved. There is no way that Putney can keep him on the payroll when this goes public.

I heard he was ashamed of his own junk and color so he sent an internet photo of a white mans junk.

I heard he put the junk in the trunk!! Hahahahahahaha!!!!!

Anon: March 15 @ 10:29 am. You must be a useless King Rodney and Putney supporter. They are both useless as toys in a boar hog and are racist. You have something to hide and were /are being shielded by them. Also riding on their coat tails.

CMPD DIV 12 way to throw Dearing under the bus.

Anonymous said...

Can't see any scenario where this guy can keep his job. He has disgraced the department. Just resign already and save face.

If Martha Dearing was in fact planning to put a guy like that back on the job, she SHOULD be "thrown under the bus." Someone willing to cover up crimes for police officers should be fired themselves, should not be in IA, should not be a police officer.

When will you ALL get it?

Honor is not in covering CRIMES and MISCONDUCT for other officers.
Honor is in covering safety on the job and peace in the community and at home.

Terrible attitude. Wrong job for you.

Hate to say that won't happen. He is one of the chosen one by being black, if this is his skin color. And like March 16th at 8:52 a.m. said that if your white you don't have a chance within CMPD. To have it made within CMPD now you either need to be black, female either white or black. Then there are those that can be a lesbian and still keep their job on a specialized unit such as K9. Those who have been on with CMPD for awhile, such be familiar with this incident involving the K9 officer. But being black you have a much better chance in being promoted to positions that aren't deserved. Shows you how really screwed up CMPD has become with their integrity, none exists.

Many off the books requests for NCIC information out of Charlotte go through Durham. Apparently they have good contacts there...919-560-4600 gets you the comm center or an operator. If you mutter the right words you'll get a call or text from an independent number arranging your information and payment. Used it a couple times. Alicia is the usual one's name.

Not sure who "Martha Dearing" is you idiot but Sgt. Marsha Dearing is one of the best and fair supervisors CMPD is fortunate enough to have.

Well, in all fairness...Comer got a DWI in SC after wrecking his motorcycle and he's still here and in his specialized assignment...and...wait for it....he's white!! But, the rumor is he is a lesbian so maybe that helped???

I'm not a fan of name calling and CMPD DIV 12 is actually pretty on point with comments.

The fact is someone in the department used NCIC to give pretty much everyone in the department a bad name, not to mention guys in general.

The trouble is the department is discounting the event and hoping it just goes away. Main stream media quickly lost interest and moved on with a small amount of stonewalling and disinformation.

If the facts true up then Andre Caldwell should be fired. Anyone trying to cover up his actions should be fired, anyone in command that thinks this sort of behavior is acceptable should be fired.

Any questions?

Corruption and shady dealings and misconduct it just never ends. Rodney's legacy will be a forever tarnished police force. Sad very sad.

So let's see...the sergeants promotional list was closed out in January, but King Putney wanted Kim Brewington to be a sergeant (even though she can't find her way out of the bathroom by herself) and she missed the cutoff. They tell her not to worry about it she will get promoted one way or another off of this new process...she doesn't even pass the written portion of the exam this time (oooops!!) so King Putney says "Hey, I have a pen and a phone and I can write up some executive orders. I shall now re-instate the closed sergeants list so that Kim Brewington may be promoted. All minions bow before my greatness." So what the hell is that bullshit??!! If Waddling Todd Walther and The Stick Michalec would get off of their worthless pussy asses and start standing up for the FOP membership they would have this place back in court like they did back in the Stone ages when Ronnie Stinson and Alex Vinson got promoted about 50 people ahead of several white officers. And yeah yeah, I know Ronnie is supposed to be the secretary now which in itself is hilarious since he's functionally illiterate.

The name calling is from rookies that spend more time under the desk of their supervisors shining boots and other things. Dearing is a moron and is extremely incompatant. You think she is fair? Then you have been here less than 5 years. Comer received a reckless ticket after he beat the DWI. HE WAS NOT FOUND GUILTY! He is white. He also is friends with Putney. So? 1 in 10 whites keep there job? That's horseshit. The fact remains that Dearing will not fully investigate and

Sgt. Dearing is absolutely a fair supervisor. And wow i have been on ALOT longer than 5 years. Sounds like you have made some mistakes in your career and are trying to place the blame on anybody but you. Grow up and move on.
