A female Quakertown police officer has filed a gender discrimination complaint against the department.Officer Cassie Zliceski filed the complaint on July 20 with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, alleging a violation of state and federal law. But Zliceski, borough officials and the state commission, which is investigating the complaint, would not disclose any specifics about the case. The state human relations commission began its investigation July 30, looking into whether Zliceski has faced discrimination or harassment in the workplace because she is a woman. The Doylestown woman is the first and only female officer to serve on Quakertown's force. She was hired in 2007 and completed her probationary period in 2009.Quakertown has 18 officers, including the chief.Zliceski's complaint alleges harassment based on her sex but not necessarily sexual harassment, said Shannon Powers, spokeswoman for the state human relations commission.Sexual harassment typically involves unwanted sexual advances, requests for sexual favors and other conduct of a sexual nature.The complaint is filed against the Quakertown police department but does not name a specific person, which is common in these cases, said Powers.Zliceski declined to comment for this story.Borough police chief and manager Scott McElree said the borough "doesn't comment on any pending litigation" or matters that could lead to litigation.McElree did say this is the first complaint filed against the department since at least 2004, when he was hired as chief.Council President Jim Roberts also declined to comment.Although Zliceski filed complaints with both the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, only one of the two entities investigates the complaint, said Powers. The Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission works to reach a settlement between the parties.If, after a year, no agreement is reached, the complainant has the right to file a lawsuit in state court. If this occurs, the commission closes its case. If not, the commission continues its investigation.At the end of the investigation, the commission determines whether there's probable cause. If so, the case can go to a public hearing before the human relations commissioners, who have the power to order a cease and desist of any harassment or discrimination and can award damages.

The Borough has become such a joke since Scott McElree has taken over. You have police officerhaving sex during work in the basement with the financial director and getting caught by borough workers. They get caught by a state cop having sex in a borough car after a borough hall meeting and nothing happens to them. Now this. When is council going to wake up and see they still have a problem with this guy. They let Dave Woglom run wild now Scott. You think they would of learned something from there past mistakes.

Seems to me the girl just needs some lovin'. In need of real romance. Tell you what, bring her over to my home and she'll get all the love and passion she could handle. We'll have one wild time indeed. Hey she's human, she got needs, she's got feelings, they just need to be given a chance to be on the daring side for a while.
Then afterward, I'll take her to Maize which is a fine dining place in Perkasie where they got the best gourmet food around.
Whole event of lovin' and a great meal will probably take a full day and an overnight stay, so have her bring a shower towel and her own toothbrush and change of clothes. Be a lot of work on my part but It'll be worth it. Now, who's with me??

If this is accurate and factual,I hope all people involved lose there jobs,are jailed,and have to pay back all wages from the date in happened,and anything else the court deems fit.Here again certain people ,just because they have a badge feel they are above the law.They should all be subjected to a lie detector,and even drug testing too.It is no different than the cops in Philadelphia who where nailed for throwing a drug dealer out of a second story window back in the 80's ah,but not before taking his money and drugs.The final outcome was the two detectives were found out 1 resigned the other went into rehab was fired and as I recall had to serve time.In my opinion they got of easy!!!Thumbs up for turning them in.I wish you all the luck in the world.That is just an unethical practice again.and beware to any who think they are above the law,You Will Be Found Out!!!!

Philly cops are also on the line now with the beating in Philly and turning their guns on bystanders. Of course it's just a snippet of video....it's always the before and after that tells the story.

to Joke -
And how are the actions of others all Scott's fault? That's like blaming the parents when their 18 year old kid gets caught smoking dope... did the parent make the kid do it? NO, did he tell his officers to do what they did? NO... If someone else had his job they would have the same problems and your stupid a$$ would be blaming them too. So until you walk in his shoes don't judge the man. Decides your most likely hating on the guy cause you got a parking ticket or busted for flashing old ladies or something. So, shut up and sit down.

Scott know about the affair and covered it up. I could care less what they do on there own time but to do it during work is a different story. Also they got caught in a boro vehicle which Scott knew about. Can you say cover up.

Cops have stolen from me, took my car, done drugs at a house i used to hang out with, excepted sex in exchange for imunity. Ive complained about this over and over (except for the sex), and finally my doctor (who knows i'd be sympathetic) was driving in new hope ottsville area when he was pulled over for speeding. he says he knows he wasnt, but the 2 cops said"well how much money do you have on you?" and they shook him down for his money. i was thinking, maybe now that they targeted an upper class, clean record person theyll get nailled for this. But you know what, hes just a doctor that helps sick people, he's not out collecting fine money, so the county will bury this too

Have numerous friends at borough, totally agree with your comments except about off-duty. These are highly paid public employees, who are even in supervisory positions, not door greeters at Walmart, although it appears walmart has higher ethic standards than the borough management. You know they spent a lot of time on duty flirting to lay the foundation for the affair. So even off duty it matters, they are supposed to set the example, how do you think all the other workers feel about these two and the embarassment they have brought on the borough. No one respects them or the double standards. Do you blame them, with all the double standards, lying, cheating, conduct unbecoming. Look at the positions they are in. WOuld you trust them? Would the taxpayers if they know the full story on these two and the manager? Where is counsel on this matter since they apparently have known about it. What does this say of their ethics?
