Report details incidents in Struthers detective firing

STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – Documents obtained by WKBN First News reveal in more detail the incidents that led to the firing of Struthers police detective Ray Greenwood.

In a pre-disciplinary report drawn up by the management consulting firm of Clemans, Nelson & Associates, Greenwood is accused by Struthers Mayor Terry Stocker of insubordination and using intimidating and threatening measures. He is also accused of making misleading statements to investigators.

The infractions range from dealing with colleagues and superiors to a public incident where Greenwood was responding to a local school and behaved in an “intimidating and unprofessional manner,” according to the report.

Stocker also accused Greenwood of removing confidential law enforcement records and disseminating them outside of the City. Some documents removed from the city were sent to a business holding a contract with the city in an effort to have an employee terminated, the report stated.

Greenwood is also accused of using the Ohio Law Enforcement Gateway system to obtain information on several people, including city employees, for which there was “no legitimate, plausible criminal justice purpose.”

Greenwood has denied all the allegations and plans to appeal.
