,, MEMORANDUM Austin Police Department Office of the Chief of Police TO: Joya Hayes, Director of Civil Service FROM: Brian Manley, Chief of Police DATE: December 12,2018 SUBJECT: Indefinite Suspension of Police Sgt. Marci Laczko #3665 Internal Affairs Control Number 2018-0584 ::c c::. = S:.,1 ::.J (i,', r.-· C• r- -._ ,-, CD (J) 0 ... , \) w Pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 143 of the Texas Local Government Code, Section 143.052, and Rule 10, Rules of Procedure for the Firefighters', Police Officers' and Emergency Medical Service Personnel's Civil Service Commission, I have indefinitely suspended Police Sgt. Marci Laczko #3665 from duty as a police officer for the City of Austin, Texas effective December 12,2018. I took this action because Sgt. Laczko violated Civil Service Commission Rule 1 0.03, which sets forth the grounds for disciplinary suspensions of employees in the classified service, and states: No employee of the classified service of the City of Austin shall engage in, or be involved in, any of the following acts or conduct, and the same shall constitute cause for suspension of an employee from the classified service of the City: L. Violation of any of the rules and regulations of the Fire Department or Police Department or of special orders, as applicable. The following are specific acts committed by Sgt. Laczko in violation of Rule I 0: Sgt. Laczko's was dating a 17-year old female minor who shall be identified herein as Ms. X. A complaint was filed with the Austin Police Department by Ms. X's father alleging multiple acts of misconduct by Sgt. Laczko that occurred between February and July 2018. Some ofthose interactions are documented in APD offense reports 2018-1711503 and 2018-1711483. Essentially, and as will be described in greater detail 1 ) ):> < rn 0.. .. below, the complaint alleged that Sgt. Laczko interfered with Ms. X's parent's parental rights by taking Ms. X against her parents' instructions on an unauthorized trip to Huntsville, Texas with Sgt. Laczko and to visit Sam Houston State University (SHSU), and attempted to influence her into choosing to attend that institution rather than the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), which she planned on attending in the Fall of 2018. The Trip to Huntsville: On or about June 10, 2018, Sgt. Laczko and her planned a trip to Huntsville. Ms. X's father was aware of the trip and that his daughter was planning on going with Sgt. Laczko and her the next day, June 11, 2018. On June 10, 2018, the father called Sgt. Laczko and left a voicemail on her cell phone discussing the planned trip and infonned Sgt. Laczko that his daughter did not have pennission to go with her and her . Sgt. Laczko contends that she was not aware that Ms. X's parents were prohibiting her from traveling to Huntsville with her and her , but rather, it was simply their wish and desire that she not go, but the ultimate decision was up to Ms. X. This assertion is based upon the voicemail that Ms. X's father left, which states in part: "And so with regard to tomorrow, wn, going to Sam Houston State visit, wn, we're going to ask that (Ms. X) kind a hold for right now because we're still fly in' to sort out the whole college thing. So I just want to get with you .first, wn, and just let you /mow, ah, that we're gonna ask her to- ah, not go tomorrow while we sort all this out. And so, um, I appreciate that and so, ({you could just ... wn, just wanted to let you kno'vv so, um ... " During her Internal Affairs (lA) interviews on September 26 and/or November 13, 2018, Sgt. Laczko stated that she did not know that Ms. X did not have authorization to go on the trip, that she did not know that Ms. X did not have authorization to go on the trip prior to leaving that morning, and that she did not know Ms. X's parents did not want Sgt. Laczko to take their daughter to Huntsville until after she returned from the trip. Sgt. Laczko also stated she did not have a conversation with Ms. X about whether her parents gave Ms. X pennission to go to Huntsville until after they returned to the Austin area later in the evening. However, the following evidence proves that Sgt. Laczko was untruthful with lA as she knew for a fact that Ms. X was not authorized by her parents to travel with her to Huntsville prior to leaving Austin, and despite that knowledge, she not only allowed Ms. X to travel with her, but encouraged Ms. X to challenge and disregard her parents' lawful parental authority. 1. Text Message between Sgt. Laczko and her Contemporaneous to the lA investigation, the APD Special Investigations Unit (SIU) conducted a related, yet separate, criminal investigation. On July 24, 2018 SIU executed a search warrant on Sgt. Laczko's phone. A review of the extraction report yielded a text thread between Sgt. Laczko and her , which had been deleted from her phone. This text was relevant to the pending lA and SIU investigation and its deletion was an effort by Sgt. Laczko to interfere with and subvert these pending investigations. The text conversation 2 is dated June 11, 2018 and occurred while Sgt. Laczko, her , and Ms. X were in a vehicle driving to Huntsville. Sgt. Laczko 9:44am "(Ms. X) Mom and Dad each called once about an hour ago ... Neither one left a message or have texted her. She's going to tell them once we get there where she is. " 9:45 am "Hope they don't blame you and !" Sgt. Laczko 9:47am "Oh they will. (Ms. A) said her dad will be shocked that I went against his wishes because no one ever does that. " 9:48 am "Oh boy" Sgt. Laczko 9:49am "That's because he's a bullv. I am not a(i·aid to stand up to bullies. But I am concerned how he will treat (Ms. A) once she gets home" 9:50 am "True" 2. Officer Holmes In-Car video On June 20, 2018, the Austin Police Department received a call for service from Sgt. Laczko's . Officer Holmes responded to the scene and spoke with Sgt. Laczko and her . This call is documented under APD Versadex Report 18-1711483. When speaking with Officer Holmes about taking Ms. X to Huntsville, Sgt. Laczko stated that Ms. X's father called her (Sgt. Laczko) the day before and left her a voice message that stated, "You're not allowed to take her. " Sgt. Laczko went on to explain to Officer Holmes, "Well she is 17 years old. I wasn't kidnapping her. She's an adult she can go if she wants to. " A bit later, Sgt. Laczko stated to Officer Holmes, "He was shocked that I, his words, disobeyed him and took his daughter to a college visit. " 3. Researching the Harboring a Runaway Statute Sgt. Laczko told IA that she considered allowing Ms. X to stay with her if Ms. X's parents kicked her out of the house but she did not want her or herself (Sgt. Laczko) to get in trouble for harboring a runaway. The extraction report for Sgt. Laczko's cell phone confinns that on June 29, 2018, at 11:12 am, she searched "harboring a runaway statute texas." If Sgt. Laczko truly believed a 17-year old was an adult and had authorization to travel to Huntsville, she would not have needed to research the Texas harboring a runaway statute. 3 .. Sgt. Laczko contends that Ms. X could go if she wanted to and had the legal right to disregard her parents' instructions: "Well she is 17 years old. I wasn't kidnapping her. She's an adult she can go ({she wants to." Sgt. Laczko's recitation of the law is incorrect despite the fact she is a police officer who is charged with knowing, understanding, and complying with the laws she enforces. Since Ms. X was a minor, Sgt. Laczko's actions in taking her to Huntsville without her parents' consent is a violation of Section 25.04 of the Texas Penal Code: Enticing a Child. Sec. 25.04. ENTICING A CHILD. (a) A person commits an offense if, with the intent to interfere with the lawful custody of a child younger than 18 years, he knowingly entices, persuades, or takes the child from the custody of the parent or guardian or person standing in the stead of the parent or guardian of such child. (b) An offense under this section is a Class B misdemeanor, unless it is shown on the trial of the offense that the actor intended to commit a felony against the child, in which event an offense under this section is a felony of the third degree. In her first statement to lA, Sgt. Laczko stated if she had known that she did not have pennission to take Ms. X to Huntsville on June 11, 2018, then she would have fit the elements of this offense. Since the above cited evidence proves that Sgt. Laczko knew she did not have permission for Ms. X to accompany her on the trip prior to leaving Austin, by her own unknowing admission she violated this Penal Code provision. 4. Statements Made by Ms. X to SIU Ms. X told SIU that: " ... then a few days later, my dad called Marci. And then 1 was eating lunch with (her ). And then Marci called 01er ), was like, "Her dad just called me and said that she can't go. " And this was like the next day. So she's like. "I think like she can 't go tomorrow, "or something. And so I was like really terrified like oh my God. My parents are trying to like control me and so - and then I told, then (her ) called his . And Marci was just like, "Well, she's 17 years old. She's like an adult. So she can decide whether she wants to go tomorrow or not. I'm not gonna. "she's like, "she can come with us. " And so I was just like, "Well, I'll go." You know, I mean, I didn't h.·now there was anything like - I didn 't- I thought I could. She gave me the impression that I wouldn 't get in trouble. Like I'm okav. Or like I probably would get in trouble with my parents, obviously ... " These actions constitute multiple policy violations, including APD Policy 900.1.1: Responsibility to Know and Comply, APD Policy 900.3.2: Acts Bringing Discredit upon the Department, and APD Policy 900.3.1: Honesty. 4 Privacy and Security of Records: Officer Holmes MDC On June 20, 2018, both Sgt. Laczko's and Ms. X's parents called the Austin Police Department to file separate police reports. Officer Holmes realized while speaking with Sgt. Laczko and her that this call was one half of a disturbance and that the other party had also called the police to file a report against Sgt. Laczko and her . Officer Holmes infonned Sgt. Laczko of the other related call for service. Sgt. Laczko asked Officer Holmes what the other party was alleging. Officer Holmes infonned Sgt. Laczko that if she showed him her APD ID card that he would allow her to read the call on his MDC. Sgt. Laczko showed Officer Holmes her APD ID card and he allowed her to enter his police vehicle so that she could read the call text infonnation for the other call. Although Officer Holmes allowed Sgt. Laczko to view his MDC, he did not think it was improper: however, Sgt. Laczko is a Sergeant, fonnerly worked in lA, and knew accessing the MDC for a non-law enforcement purpose, especially when she was the subject of a police investigation, was a violation of APD Policy 116.7 Privacy and Security of Records. When interviewed by lA, Sgt. Laczko acknowledged she violated this policy. Insubordination & Cooperating with Assigned Investigators: On June 22,2018, Sgt. Laczko was verbally given a Do-Not-Discuss (DND) and a Do-Not- Contact (DNC) order from Lt. Brian Jones. This was issued verbally, over the phone, because Sgt. Laczko was vacationing outside of the Austin area. When she returned on July 10111, she signed the order. An internal complaint was filed alleging that Sgt. Laczko may have violated those orders and contacted, or attempted to contact, witnesses and/or potential witnesses either directly or through third party means between June 22 and July 10, 2018. Information obtained during the Internal Affairs investigation supports sustaining this allegation, which constitutes insubordination and failing to cooperate with Internal Affairs. It is also important to note that Sgt. Laczko served in IA and issued similar orders in her capacity as an lA Sergeant. 1. Phone call with Sgt. Laczko's : Sgt. Laczko was ordered to provide her call/text logs for her personal cell phone. Those logs reveal an eight minute phone call between her and her on September 27, 2018 at 4:37pm. This call was the day after lA investigator(s) advised Sgt. Laczko not to call her and discuss the case since her statement revealed him to be a potential witness in her case. Although she contended the phone call dealt with the title of a car, the was a potential witness and contacting him violated the June 22, 2018 DND Order issued by Lt. Jones and the September 27111 DND verbally issued by lA. 2. Deleting Text Messages The DND that was issued to Sgt. Laczko states, in part, that she is prohibited from tampering, deleting, or concealing any evidence pertinent to or potentially pertinent to the investigation. • Between Sgt. Laczko and her 5 As noted above, a review of the extraction report for Sgt. Laczko's cell phone yielded a text thread between her and her , which had been deleted from her phone. The text conversation is dated June 11, 2018 and occurred while Sgt. Laczko, her , and Ms. X were in a vehicle driving to Huntsville. This text was relevant to the pending lA and SIU investigation and its deletion was an effort to interfere with and subvert these pending investigations. • Between Sgt. Laczko and her The extraction report also showed a text thread between Sgt. Laczko and her . This particular thread starts on June 29, 2018 at 5:05pm. It is a lengthy thread that continues on for multiple pages. Only the first few texts are cited below. 5:05pm "] want that chiefs number" Sgt. Laczko 5:06 pm "No, you will make my life ·worse and legitimately jeopardize my job if you call the Chiefs office " 5:06pm "Fuck hum [sic] " The portion of this conversation, between Sgt. Laczko and her , immediately preceding this text was irretrievably deleted and not able to be recovered. Not only was this text relevant to the pending IA and SIU investigations and therefore its deletion was an effort to interfere with and subvert these pending investigations, it proves that Sgt. Laczko violated the DND Order by communicating with her , a witness, about the pending investigation. Sgt. Laczko's assertion that she did not discuss the pending investigation with her is not credible as there would be no reason for her to speak with a Chief (particularly considering the context/timing of the partial conversation) except to discuss the pending investigation against his . In addition, Sgt. Laczko asserts that they were not talking about her case, however, an extraction report of her search history shows that she was searching "harboring a runaway statute texas", contemporaneous to the time of this text conversation, that was deleted. Moreover, her statements to IA show she was also speaking to her about the current status of his relationship with Ms. X, which lA pointed out to her was inextricably linked to the case. Acts Bringing Discredit upon the Department Ms. X's parents knew she was an Austin Police officer. The actions described herein brought discredit upon the Department. Officers are supposed to obey the law, not break it. Sgt. Laczko's actions were a direct challenge to the parental authority of Ms. X's parents. When questioned by lA, Ms. X described the trust she had in Sgt. Laczko because she was a police officer and she violated that trust by manipulating her and encouraging her to lie to her parents: 6 Ms. X: "I mean I don 't /..1ww her intentions but again her actions showed a lot. And I feel/ike yeah I was definitely manipulated. Because like if they truly believed that I could make, that if they supported me on whatever decision I made why were they constantly texting me about like the situ- like me dealing with it with my parents? Or why were they constantly like asking me about it and talking with me? You f..?ww? 'Cause it kinda like if they would say one thing like, "We support you on, you /mow, whatever decision you make, " but then at the same time they would give me all - like Marci would give me information about like moving out and the did too. And so it was like, "If you really think I can make this - like if you really think I can -you just want me to do what I want to do 'vvhy are you so involved?" And so it wa- yeah I- I was manipulated because they were taking- kind o[taking advantage o[my weaknesses and kind o(taking advantage o(like me not, vou f..?ww, liking my parents at that time and me like thinking that they - mv parents are controlling me . ... And it made me getting hurt and really - like I'm having trouble trusting people now. I'm having like -I just all- this whole situation is so hard to process for me. It's just I trusted Marci 'cause I was like, "She's a police officer. She's, a . "And then all o[a sudden it's trving to think, "No, she - all these things were mainlv I think just about Oter ). And just trving to make him happv. " "Yeah, for sure when she- I would get texts from my mom like saying I had to be home at this certain time and Marci -I would tell Marci and- and she would just be like, "Well, tell your mom this. "And then like, "You're not gonna come home. "Like that -she would like say just - and then also like my mom called Marci saying, "Where is (Ms. X)?" And I'm pretty sure I was right next to Marci and she's just like I'm not home. I don't /..1ww- or something like that happened where I f..?ww Marci /..11ew where I was. Like (her calls her a lot and talks to her a lot and they /mow where we are. " Dishonesty: Sgt. Laczko's statement during both lA interviews that she did not know that Ms. X did not have authorization to go on the trip, that she did not know that she did not have authorization to go on the trip prior to leaving that morning, that she did not know her parents did not want her to take their daughter to Huntsville until after Sgt. Laczko returned from the trip, and she did not have a conversation with Ms. X about whether her parents gave her permission to go to Huntsville until after they returned to the Austin area later in the evening are all untrue, as proven by the evidence obtained during the lA investigation. The following is just an example of the false and/or misleading statements: Sgt. Laczko: "Yeah as- that's what the message said. I think there is a big difference between -did I think her dad wanted her to go to Sam Houston at all? No. Did I think he wanted her to go to college there? No. There's a big difference between f..?wwing that you don 't really want your kid to do something but allowing them to do it and/or for me, in my - how I was looking at it as I knew he didn't really want her to go. I don't - the mom was flip flopping back and forth, but I did not /..1ww that I did not have 7 authorization to take her. And that is the biggest - in my mind that's the biggest thing. I knew he wasn't excited about it, but I did not know she didn 't have authorization to go, because she showed up at my house. The following morning she drove to my home at 7:30 and we got in the car and we le(t. I said "Oh you're going?" "Yes. " We got in the car and we left. While we're on the road we start talking a little bit. " Sgt. Laczko: "I don't think we would ever file that charge to be honest with you in the real world. But it would've fit more than what I did because I did not - in my mind I did not /mow that I did not have authorization to put her in the car and go. That's the bottom line. " Sgt. Laczko was also dishonest with IA when she claimed she was confused when speaking with Officer Holmes. Specifically, when explaining her statement that she knew Ms. X was not allowed to go on the trip, she claimed confusion with a subsequent trip that never occurred. However, the following statements made by Sgt. Laczko and Ms. X are nearly identical, proving that Sgt. Laczko was not confused and knew Ms. X was not authorized to travel to Huntsville: On June 20111 Sgt. Laczko made the following statement to Officer Holmes: (Ms. X's) dad called and left a voicemail that said, "You're not alloH'ed to take her". Sgt. Laczko went on to explain to Officer Holmes, "Well she is 17 vears old. I wasn't kidnapping her. She's an adult she can go i(she wants to." On August 3rd, Ms. X made the following statement to lA about what Sgt. Laczko told her and her on the phone after receiving the voicemail from Ms. X's father: "Yeah, I heard her say that, um, I'm 17 -years-old. Um, basically like I've - I don 't - I think she clarified like I wouldn 't get in trouble lawfully like i[l went without like - since my dad contacted her. So I .felt fine about it. Like I /mew I probably would have got in trouble with my parents but like she said like I can still come ({I want to 'cause I'm like -I can make that decision. Um, so ... " In addition to her failure to accept responsibility, Sgt. Laczko placed blame on her , Ms. X, and Ms. X's parent(s), claiming that Ms. X's father was unclear in his request and/or her and Ms. X deceived her. She maintained this assertion even though her text messages show otherwise and her statement(s), including those to Officer Holmes on June 20, 2018 show she had a clear understanding and was not deceived by her nor Ms. X. When IA tried to get Sgt. Laczko to concede to these fact(s), she dodged and/or misdirected their questions and untruthfully claimed she was confused in her dialogue with Officer Holmes. Moreover, not only was Sgt. Laczko dishonest with IA during her interviews, the act of deleting text messages and violating the DND and DNC Order is considered an act of dishonesty that interferes with and subverts the integrity of lA and SIU investigations. A single untruthful statement and/or action is grounds for termination and considered Brady material. Any one of the aforementioned, acts/or misleading statements compromises Sgt. Laczko's integrity as an employee and witness in the future, and make her unemployable by 8 the Department, therefore Sgt. Laczko leaves me with no choice but to indefinitely suspend her, which was the unanimous recommendation of her chain of command. For the purposes of Local Government Code Chapter 143 .052(h), the 180-day statutory period for me to impose this suspension began on June 20, 2018, the date the Department discovered this alleged criminal activity by Sgt. Laczko (violation of Penal Code 25.04). By these actions, Sgt. Laczko violated Rule 1 0.03(L) by violating the following rules and regulations of the Austin Police Department: ~ Austin Police Department Policy 900.1.1: General Conduct and Responsibilities: Responsibility to Know and Comply 900.1.1 Responsibility to Know and Comply The rules of conduct set forth in this policy do not serve as an all-inclusive list of requirements, limitations, or prohibitions on employee conduct and activities; employees are required to know and comply with all Department policies, procedures, and written directives. (a) Employees will maintain a working knowledge and comply with the laws, ordinances, statutes, regulations, and APD written directives which pertain to their assigned duties. (b) Employees who do not understand their assigned duties or responsibilities will read the relevant directives and guidelines, and will consult their immediate supervisor for clarification and explanation. (c) A lack ofknowledge of an APD written directive is not a defense to disciplinary action. To Wit: Sec. 25.04. ENTICING A CHILD (a) A person commits an offense if, with the intent to interfere with the lawful custody of a child younger than 18 years, he knowingly entices, persuades, or takes the child from the custody of the parent or guardian or person standing in the stead of the parent or guardian of such child. (b) An offense under this section is a Class B misdemeanor, unless it is shown on the trial of the offense that the actor intended to commit a felony against the child, in which event an offense under this section is a felony of the third degree. 9 ~ Responsibility: Insubordination 110.4.4 Insubordination Employees will not be insubordinate. The willful disobedience of, or deliberate refusal to obey any lawful order of a supervisor is insubordination. Defying the authority of any supervisor by obvious disrespect, arrogant or disrespectful conduct, ridicule, or challenge to orders issued is considered insubordination whether done in or out of the supervisor's presence. ~ Austin Police Department Policy 900.3.1: General Conduct and Responsibilities: Honesty 900.3.1 Honesty Honesty is of the utmost importance in the police profession. Employees are expected to be truthful at all times in the perfonnance of their duties. (a) Employees will speak the truth at all times and reflect the truth in all reports and written communications. Any statement or omission of pertinent or material infonnation which intentionally misrepresents facts or misleads others through an official statement will be considered a false official statement. The following are examples of an "official statement": 2. Verbal or written statements made by an officer in connection with their official duties to: (a) An investigator conducting an administrative or criminal investigation of the.officer or another person's conduct. (c) Employees will not attempt to conceal, divert, or mitigate their true culpability in a situation, nor will they engage in efforts to thwart, influence, or interfere with an internal or criminal investigation. ~ Austin Police Department Policy 902.4.1: Administrative Investigations: Cooperating with Assigned Investigators 902.4.1 Cooperating with Assigned Investigators (a) Employees will cooperate with any assigned investigator as if they were addressing the Chief.

(b) Honesty is of the utmost importance in the police profession. Employees are expected to be truthful at all times during interviews 10 with investigators as outlined in General Order 900 (General Conduct and Responsibilities). 1. Employees who are found to have given a false official statement are subject to indefinite suspension as outlined in the Discipline Matrix ("Dishonesty- False Official Statements"). 2. There may be cases where officers have not been truthful but the dishonesty does not constitute a false official statement. In those situations, the Chief shall consider each case on a fact specific basis and may decide that corrective action other than indefinite suspension is warranted as outlined in the Discipline Matrix ("Neglect of Duty- Misleading Statements"). ~ Austin Police Department Policy 900.3.2: General Conduct and Responsibilities: Acts Bringing Discredit Upon the Department 900.3.2 Acts Bringing Discredit Upon the Department Since the conduct of personnel both on-duty or off-duty may reflect directly upon the Department, employees must conduct themselves at all times in a manner which does not bring reproach, discredit, or embarrassment to the Department or to the City.
