CPD investigation tied to hours officers worked at hospital

Two Columbus police officers being investigated by the Indiana State Police were working part-time jobs at Columbus Regional Health. That’s according to our news gathering partners at The Republic. The officers are accused of working at the hospital while also getting paid for the same hours at CPD.

According to the paper, uniformed Columbus police and sheriff’s deputies work as security contractors at the hospital. The special arrangement has been in place since the June 2008 flood.

After allegations were brought last year, 31-year Columbus Police veteran Ron May agreed to retire and Dan Meister, at the time a lieutenant with 22 years at the department, was demoted to the rank of patrolman.

The state police are investigating whether any laws were broken by the officers.
