“SALEM — A 17-year veteran of the police department was suspended for 18 months this week after falsely reporting an injury in early May, according to police Chief Mary Butler.
Patrolman Ryan Davis was suspended without pay following a disciplinary hearing on Tuesday, May 23. He had been placed on paid administrative leave on May 2, the day after the incident took place.
Just before 11 p.m. on May 1, Davis entered the station with an injury and reported that he’d received the injury at the police station, according to Butler. His claim would have left the city responsible for the injury.”
