What about the background that was supposedly done. How could they have missed that. I would be asking for a refund on any alledged backgrounds done. A simple phone call could have verified any informaton. How about getting a copy of the background investigations and see what the alledged to have done for verification. There possibly could be mored fraud than just the chief here.

i have never known a more corrupt department. our chief has a felony and still serves today two of our officers one being the lead detective and both are best friends were caught earlier this month fighting over the lead detectives soon to be ex wife and has bitten a chunk out of the other officers face not only that but my boyfriend was wrongly accused of rape earlier this year and they wanted nothing to do with the case not only did this ruin his name he also lost his job and many other things now this same girl who accused him and his friend of this is now telling many people in the community that she has found where we live and wants to hire or find someone to kill us the department thinks nothing of this so now all we can do is hope for the best. many of these cops have been seen at various parties while on duty drinking and other sorts of things. they will also find any bullshit thing on you to have a reason to arrest you and to take you to the station for sweet revenge. Something needs to change!

You are so quick to down the lead detective.. what are you related to that idiot we call a mayor to? The one being faulted for this happens to be one of the best cops of the force.. the most understanding, and down to earth. The only reason the other officer was not punished was because he is related to the Mayor. Granted I am the first to admit that Fostoria has a lot of crooked cops, I know a few of them and have witnessed there wrong doings first hand. But two that I knew to be very off beat have already been dismissed! But cops are only human. The lead detective acted on instinct..what would you do if you walked in and found someone else with your wife, co worker or not!? That other officer is probably lucky that all he got was a chunk out of his face. I see no reason why one got unpaid leave and the other got off, except for the fact that the one that got off is the Mayors Nephew!!

i am a self owned business thats see's the good and the bad in the Fostoria police dept.What I don't agree with is the way they are forced to steak out bars and scare off all the customers by waiting in the parking lot and as soon as you leave they are pulling you over. If you were not driving reckless or looking like you were under the influence then I feel its violation of your rights.Those busniess's pay taxes and do great things for the comunitee we don't have enough self owned and now were looking more and more like a ghost town.

I've seen first hand fostoria at its best n well its worst also.. when I was younger i seen on more than one accasion police officers on our force taking personal time with females and males when the two women were on the force while on the clock.. I've seen on more than one occasion citizens be forcefully put under arrrest because of drugs officers put in there car.. multiple times illegal seaches of homes cars and peoples personal belongings n when the liers can't find nothing they plant it to make there wasted investigation look like it wasn't a waste of how many hours or years sometimes .. FOSTORIA NEEDS CHANGE.. now our dept. Kills your animals even if they waste there time and can't find what they want with children in the house ?? People go to jail for years for shit like that ..wut did we do give idiots a license to kill here ?? Its time to fire back its been enough .. get real fostoria were the melting pot for northwest ohio and everyone here's so hard n blah blah stand up let's get the crooked p.o.s scum out of our city we ran it perfectly fine without the crooked bums before ..
