Black Peoria Police Officer Clayton Glasper Back on Duty During Investigation For Feeling up on Women
A Peoria police officer placed on administrative leave last year amid allegations he fondled a woman while on duty has returned to work.
On Saturday, Clayton Glasper, 44, reported to work but did not rejoin the patrol division, his usual assignment, police sources said. Instead, Glasper reported to the information office, where he will perform desk work.
A 20-year veteran of the department, Glasper will remain in that capacity until an internal investigation is completed. That investigation was launched the same time Glasper fell under investigation by the Peoria County State’s Attorney’s Office.
Glasper was placed on paid administrative leave Nov. 16. During his leave, the incident for which he is being reviewed was subject to several weeks of grand jury testimony, police sources said. Glasper has not been indicted or charged with any wrongdoing.
The internal investigation, which was put on hold, pending the six-week criminal investigation, is now under way.
Though not much is known about the incident, sources within the Police Department said the allegations were severe enough they could have merited criminal charges.
Police officials have declined to comment about the allegations against Glasper, citing it as a personnel matter and therefore confidential.
