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.
Nigger Peoria Police Officer Clayton Glasper Put on Paid Leave for Allegedly Fondling a Women While on Duty
A 20-year veteran of the Peoria Police Department has been placed on administrative leave.
An investigation into allegations Clayton Glasper, 44, a patrol officer, inappropriately fondled a woman while on duty led to the decision, effective Nov. 16.
Not much else is known about the incident, including when he will return to duty.
Police and city officials declined to comment Wednesday, saying it was a personnel matter, therefore confidential.
Sources within the Police Department said the allegations may merit criminal charges, which could come in the form of an indictment. The next Peoria County grand jury meets Tuesday.
It’s common for officers to be placed on administrative leave while an investigation, either internal or criminal, is being conducted. The police chief determines whether the leave is paid or unpaid. In Glasper’s case, it is paid.
