Two Michigan State Police troopers have been charged in an off-duty incident on Mackinac Island.
Andrew Longuski and Derrick Jordan were arraigned on misdemeanor charges of larceny under $200 and disorderly conduct for their actions in an off-duty incident that happened on May 18.
A State Police spokesperson released this statement:
The MSP has a long-standing tradition of demanding the highest possible standards of professional conduct from its enforcement and civilian members. To that end, all allegations of misconduct are aggressively investigated. Alleged violations of administrative rules are also investigated thoroughly and acted upon in a manner consistent with current labor-relations law and bargaining unit agreements. Regardless of whether a criminal charge results in a conviction, employees can still be subject to administrative penalties resulting from violations of department policy.
The troopers work in the polygraph section of biometrics and identification division.
