FOP response to Pgh. Police Administration concerning Sgt. Stephen Matakovich
Posted On: Feb 04, 2016
While we respect the Chief’s personal opinion the processes that are in place by outside agencies are out of our control. What the Chief does have control over is the continuing internal investigation, which by our working agreement cannot be commented on at this time.
While Sgt. Matakovich’s case is important to the administration and the City as an employer I find it interesting that the media and the Administration continue to focus on this as a priority rather than the increase in violent crime across the City. Just yesterday we had another homicide and four separate shootings within the same community.
