CL officer suspended for neglect of protocol
CRYSTAL LAKE – A Crystal Lake police officer was suspended for what the department’s chief said was failure to follow protocol in an incident involving District 47 Superintendent Donn Mendoza.
Officer Brian Burr, who has been with the department since 1997, was given a three-day, unpaid suspension. Police Chief Dave Linder said Burr did not follow department procedure when he responded to a call involving Mendoza early in the morning of Sept. 9.
According to a police report written more than a week after the incident, police were called to Autumn Drive about 2:30 a.m. Sept. 9 after a neighbor reported a suspicious vehicle parked outside a residence. Burr responded and found Mendoza sitting in the back seat of his Honda Pilot. He was parked seven houses from his home, and Burr said Mendoza smelled of alcohol and appeared to be intoxicated, according to the report.
