One of Three Portland Police Officers Who Posted Controversial Facebook Image Now on Desk Duty
One of the three Portland police officers who had posted on his Facebook page the Portland police badge, covered with a bracelet that read “I AM DARREN WILSON,” has been put on desk duty, the Portland Police Bureau confirmed.
Sgt. Pete Simpson said Wednesday that Officer Rob Blanck, a 24-year bureau veteran, has been reassigned to desk duty in the bureau’s Operations Support Unit, historically known as the telephone reporting unit.
Simpson said the re-assignment was due to an “unrelated personnel issue, not the Facebook post.”
