A sergeant from the New York Police Department who supervised the Harvey Weinstein probe is being investigated.
Keri Thompson, who is in charge of the DNA team of the NYPD, is one of the senior officials being investigated for alleged misconduct, the New York Times reports.
The 43-year-old directed the 10-month investigation into Weinstein.
The misconduct investigation is assumed not to be linked at all to the Weinstein probe.
Keri Thompson (left), who is in charge of the NYPD's cold case team, is among high-ranking officials being investigated for alleged misconduct. She was responsible for the ten-month investigation into Harvey Weinstein last year
She was portrayed with a handcuffed Weinstein in court last year after he was arrested for sexual abuse.
The internal investigation focuses on isolated cases of time abuse and a departmental vehicle.
A source said investigators were looking for dozens of rape packages that officers had picked up at hospitals in the Bronx and had never reported to the medical investigator's office.
They also investigate the suspicious circumstances with regard to a departmental vehicle that was part of Thompson & # 39; s crew that was badly damaged in the Bronx and then taken out of service.
As part of the investigation, the office of the DNA Cold Case Squad, with headquarters in the Bronx, was raided on Friday.
Two other offices that Thompson visits – including the headquarters of the Special Victims Division and the Manhattan Special Victims Squad – were also robbed.
& # 39; The focus is on Keri Thompson and everyone around Thompson, & # 39; told a law enforcement source New York Post.
& # 39; The three locations where they came from and took the time registration, they are three locations where they log in and out. She is the common denominator. & # 39;
Thompson joined the NYPD in 1998 and has a salary of $ 125,531.
