Ex-Carmel policeman to appeal firing

March 21, 2011

A former Carmel police officer is appealing the police merit board’s decision to terminate him over claims he abused his power and disobeyed orders. Greg Park claims he was unjustly retaliated against after he came forward with concerns that the department was guilty of racial profiling. At the merit board meeting in February, Carmel Police Chief Tim Green said Park showed a pattern of questionable behavior, including pulling over too many female drivers and driving to one young woman’s house to give her a warning for speeding.
