The temporary suspension is effective beginning on January 18, 2020 and continuing through January 27, 2020. I took this action because Officer Ogle violated Civil Service Commission Rule 10.03, 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.

The following are the specific acts committed by Officer Ogle in violation of Rule 10: On July 26, 2019, Officer Ogle met with attorneys from the Travis County District Attorney’s Office to prepare for trial. During the meeting, Officer Ogle made a comment related to ajudge’s decision to allow certain defendants out ofjail on personal recognizance bonds. The Assistant District Attorneys shared the comment that was made to them with other members of their office, which was then brought to the attention of the APD. Thereafter, on July31, 2019, APD Lieutenant Kenneth Hubbs signed an Internal Complaint Memorandum requesting Internal Affairs Division (IA) conduct an administrative investigation to determine if Department General Orders, Civil Service Rules, or State Law had been violated. Internal Affairs interviewed the two Assistant District Attorneys, who were present when the comment was made by Officer Ogle. Specifically, one District Attorney recalled the comment that Officer Ogle made to be “Too bad that thisjudge [Judge Tamara Needles] wasn ‘t the one that was shot, “while the other District Attorney recalled the comment to be “Too bad it wasn ‘t her [Judge Tamara Needles] that was shot instead ofJudge Kocurelc “Officer Ogle acknowledged to Internal Affairs that his comment were words to the effect of too bad Judge Tamara Needles was not shot, instead of Judge Kocurek. Officer Ogle acknowledged to Internal Affairs that he was expressing his frustration in an admittedly inappropriate and unprofessional manner about the judge. Officer Ogle acknowledged he violated APD general orders 972.4 Prohibited Speech, Expression and Conduct along with 900.3.2 Acts Bringing Discredit Upon the Department.
