article imageNYPD promoted officer involved in 16 civil lawsuits

By Justin King     Sep 10, 2013 in Crime
New York - Sergeant Fritz Glemaud of the NYPD was promoted last week. Over the course of his career, he has been implicated in 16 lawsuits against the city alleging excessive force, illegal searches, false arrests, and fabricated affidavits.
Outrage over Glemaud’s promotion to “sergeant supervisor detective squad” is building as the officer’s record comes into focus. Since Glemaud joined the Department, he has cost the city more than $300,000 in payouts to settle lawsuits for misconduct. His new position puts him in a supervisory role that allows his behavior to influence other officers. His new job comes with a sizable raise, bringing his base pay up to $114,474.
The NYPD’s policy is that being implicated in a lawsuit that was settled does not automatically mean that the officer was guilty of any wrongdoing. However, Sanford Rubenstein said that his promotion demonstrated that NYPD does not take into consideration the actions of police officers which result in lawsuits against the city while deciding promotions. Rubenstein is a lawyer representing a family that is alleging Glemaud was part of a squad of narcotics officers that killed their family dog and falsely arrested them.
This incident is the latest setback for the Raymond Kelly’s NYPD. Last week, his controversial “stop and frisk” policy was struck down by Federal Courts, and yesterday one of his officers was arrested by federal agents for allegedly using his NYPD discount to purchase firearms and smuggle them overseas.
