"In July 2020, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office contacted all local Police Chiefs, representatives from the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, Michigan State Police, and Federal agencies. We asked for a list of their current and former officers that have committed offenses detailed in Giglio v United States, 405 U.S. 150 (1972) that involve theft, dishonesty, fraud, false statement, bias, and bribery. These are offenses that can be considered by fact finders in a trial when credibility is being assessed. In addition, our assistant prosecutors are charged with letting defense attorneys know when an officer on their witness list for a case has Giglio issues or concerns. Brady v. Maryland, 373 U.S. 83 (1963)"Because trials are scheduled to resume in January, we thought it was important to send this out to our prosecutors and defense attorneys. There are currently 52 officers on the list. In advance of this release WCPO has notified all police agencies who have a current or former officer on the list. We are continuing to take the additional step of releasing the list to the public because in an era of criminal justice reform, it just makes sense. We plan to review, update and release this list on a quarterly basis."
