The Wisconsin Professional Police Association is asking a federal judge to investigate the conduct by Hortonville Police Chief Michael Sullivan.
Exectuive Director for the WPPA, James Palmer, wants Sullivan’s conduct looked at. Palmer says Sullivan violated the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act of 1994, when he “Improperly and repeatedly over a 15 year period, accessed personal information maintained by the Wisconsin Statewide criminal justice data network.”
This request comes after village officials in Hortonville filed complaints against Chief Sullivan, which led to a lengthy investigation that resulted in Sullivan being suspended without pay for two weeks. Sullivan has denied any wrongdoing.
