Andrew Todd alleges he witnessed racism, signs of intoxication on the firing range, time card fraud and sex on the job over his eight year career with the RCPD. He says his verbal and written complaints went ignored, and faced retaliation within the department for speaking up.
Todd filed a civil suit against the police chief and commissioner, the department and members of the command staff, the city and its insurer, the Vermont League of Cities and Towns.
The Rutland City attorney issued the following statement in response to the filing:
"The city will review Mr. Todd's allegations and respond to them in court. Out of respect for the process and the parties involved, we will not be making any further comment at this time."
