Loves Park Police Chief Rodney Scott is returning to work next week after having been suspended for four weeks without pay.
The Rockford Register-Star reports that Scott was not suspended for any criminal offense. Rather, Mayor Darryl Lindberg says that Scott self-reported a violation of the Department’s “behavioral expectation.”
Both Scott and City Attorney Gino Galluzzo declined to go into specifics. However, behavioral expectations typically refer to how an officer conducts themselves on and off duty, and whether that behavior reflects poorly on the Department.
