FOP media response concerning the out come of Sgt. Matakovich City Court hearing resulting in all criminal charges being dismissed today.
“We are very pleased with District Judge Ravensthal's decision this afternoon to dismiss all charges filed against Sgt. Steve Matakovich. As we have said early on in the investigation this should have been handled through the Chiefs Office as a discipline issue rather than through the courts. This will be yet another potential obstruction between the administration and the rank and file as we struggle to improve moral."
