Prof. David Schultz Quoted by Post Bulletin on the Lack of Police Investigation of The Mower County Sheriff

Professor David Schultz was quoted by the Post Bullet in an article covering the lack of police investigation when the Mower Country Sheriff was reported to be drunk at work, while armed. While officials have provided a variety of reasoning behind the inaction, Professor Schultz commented, "This type of response leads to inadequate internal affairs oversight. It sanctions police to do all kinds of bad stuff because all a police department has to say now is, ‘Well, we’re not keeping any records, we’re not doing any investigations,’ and therefore, it potentially lets police do whatever they want because they aren’t going to face any employment sanctions. That’s just sloppy policing.”
