An Internal Public Safety investigation will examine whether a party patrol went too far

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Public Safety Chief Jeff Hadley is calling for an internal investigation of some of his officers after allegations that they may have embellished the information in a request for a warrant, claiming there was still a noisy party going on after the noise had abated.

Public Safety has had a zero tolerance approach to noise near campus for years because of ongoing problems with parties getting out of hand, but in this case, there are claims the officers went too far.

It was the transcript from the department’s recording systems that revealed the alleged deception.

TV-3 is reporting that the officers burst through front door of the apartment on Euclid with guns drawn, and cited two dozen people for under aged drinking.  .And they say there may have been similar abuses at a party last October.

All the charges against the partiers from the Euclid raid have subsequently been dropped by the City Attorney's office. 

Now the actions of the officers will be reviewed.
