The head of the prevention department allegedly committed inappropriate behavior towards a civilian police employee and violated her bodily integrity during a meeting organized in Białystok on the occasion of Women’s Day. The man was dismissed from service. He is under investigation by the prosecutor’s office.
The Olsztyn police (because the case was filed there) discontinued disciplinary proceedings against the former head of the prevention department of the Podlasie police, who, during a meeting on Women’s Day, allegedly committed inappropriate behavior towards a civilian police employee and violated her bodily integrity.
As aspirant Tomasz Markowski, spokesman for the Provincial Police Headquarters in Olsztyn, told us, the Olsztyn police were commissioned to carry out disciplinary proceedings in mid-May. At the beginning of October, she received information that the officer in question had been dismissed by the provincial police commander in Białystok due to the important interests of the service.
He is no longer an officer, so the proceedings were discontinued
The proceedings therefore became pointless.
– Proceedings cannot be conducted against a person who is not a police officer – emphasized the spokesman.
As the local “Kurier Poranny” wrote, the former chief appealed against the decision to dismiss to the Police Headquarters. We are waiting for the Police Headquarters to confirm this information.
He does not respond to summons to the prosecutor’s office
The District Prosecutor’s Office in Ostrołęka replied to the TVN24 reporter that it would continue investigation into violation of bodily integrity.
The e-mail shows that proceedings are being conducted against the person, but no charges have been brought against the suspect yet because he does not respond to the summons to appear at the prosecutor’s office.
He allegedly proposed sex vulgarly and then started groping her
The situation that is the subject of the proceedings allegedly occurred during a meeting in the company of officers managing the work of the Provincial Police Headquarters in Białystok.
As tvn24.pl reported, a policeman who asked to remain anonymousone of the wardens present at the meeting “first vulgarly proposed sex to one of the participants, then he started groping her.”
First, the policeman was delegated to another unit
– We are talking about an incident where at least the inviolability and certainly the dignity of a person were violated – said sub-inspector Tomasz Krupa, spokesman for the Podlasie police, in March on TVN24.
The woman submitted a report to the provincial police commander, General Robert Szewc, regarding the chief’s behavior. At first, the commander removed the chief from his duties and delegated him to work at the City Headquarters in Białystok. Although he no longer held a managerial position, he received the same salary as before.
Confetti cop and Hawaiian dancing party
As tvn24.pl found out, this is an officer who was involved in the high-profile case of throwing red and white confetti from the deck of a Border Guard helicopter during the Independence Day celebration in Augustów. The guest of these celebrations was the Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs and Administration, Law and Justice MP Jarosław Zieliński, who was then supervising the police.
This policeman – according to the findings of tvn24.pl – was also involved in organizing another event in which Deputy Minister Zieliński also participated. It was about a conference devoted to the safety of older people, during which the deputy minister was welcomed by the Sen Hawaii group operating at the Białystok 50+ Academy, performing Hawaiian dance show. This event also took place in 2016.
