DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Police Chief James Craig is set to announce results from Detroit's ongoing Operation Clean Sweep.

The corruption investigation is a Detroit Police-led Joint Task Force investigating the former DPD Narcotics Section.

The probe has been running for 15 months. It is being conducted by 12 full-time investigators, as well as an MSP officer, 6 FBI agents, and other law enforcement investigators.

Craig says they have gone back to 2017 in their investigation. It has since expanded beyond the initial investigation into Michael Mosley, whose indictment kicked off the investigation.

The corruption investigation has also discovered "stolen overtime" relating to court appearances, according to Chief Craig.

Craig also says their indications are that the overtime fraud continued after their probe was launched.

The Chief says they have also discovered embezzlement, but that part of the investigation is still ongoing.

Craig says one officer has been terminated. Two officers resigned while under investigation.

One case has been sent to the Wayne County Prosecutor's office for charges, while another is set to be sent to the office soon.

Craig says they have also exonerated one officer in the course of the investigation.
