Is Good for the Gander
Muskego, Wisc., Police Chief John Johnson was suspicious that his two-man detective squad was not actually working during all the hours they were on the job. So he borrowed a GPS tracking device from another department and put it on the detectives’ car. The result: the duo, he found, were conducting personal errands and shopping while on the job, even stopping at a tanning salon. If the errands ran late, they put in for overtime. Det. James Kaebisch was suspended and demoted, but Det. Thomas Schilling resigned, complaining he wasn’t given a warning first. “I did a few things that I probably shouldn’t have done,” he said, “but they never made an issue of it in the past.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) ...Maybe, but then they didn’t have a GPS tracker before.
