Albany Detective Faces Drunk Driving Charges
I know that nobody is perfect but I'm always disappointed to see these stories. Police officers are supposed to rise above and be an example for out community.
According to the Times Union, a long serving detective with the Albany Police Department was stopped by state troopers in Saratoga County over the weekend.
Detective Eugene O'Hanlon from Delmar, faces charges after being with the Albany Police Department for almost 30 years. O'Hanlon was ordered to report to work today to speak with representatives from his union to discuss a possible reprimand.
What do you think should happen to the officer? Should he be suspended, given a warning, or fired?
This officer is still a human being who has to make the choices we make and this officer chose to get behind the wheel of a car when he legally should not have.
He should be held accountable to the same standards as everyone else. A judge cannot fire this man but they can demand a suspension of his license, probation, jail time and even alcohol abuse counseling.
This man should not get special treatment.
