Other GPD internal investigations on chief plus rank-and-file officers have been conducted


On Monday night, Glasgow Police Department Sgt. Jessie Barton – and his employment with the city – will be the subject of an administrative hearing with the Glasgow City Council essentially acting as a jury.
