No charges filed against EPD officer accused of incident with student

Posted: Updated:

Members of the Evansville Police Department have been working closely with the family of a local school student who filed a complaint against an EPD officer last week. 

The family has decided that they do not wish to file criminal charges against the officer.

The EPD made it clear to the family that they would pursue the charges the same as they would with any other citizen. The mother advised that the student didn't want to see the officer charged criminally and the parents concurred with his wishes. 

Although the criminal investigation has ended, an internal investigation has now begun. The officer will remain on administrative leave pending the outcome of the Internal Affairs investigation.
