Hartford police officer resigns after falsifying traffic reports

Published on

An internal investigation into a Hartford police officer found that he lied on activity reports that he filed about traffic stops, according to police.Police said the officer told investigators that he did it so he didn’t disappoint his supervisors.

Hartford police released a memo from internal affairs that was sent to Hartford Police Chief Jason Thody that said Officer Michael Fallon was found to have reported more traffic stops than he made and he falsely reported information on an arrest warrant related to a traffic stop.

This comes after an audit of Fallon’s reports from Dec. 18 through Jan. 14, which found that he reported an additional 25 motor vehicle stops that he did not conduct and 13 infractions that he didn’t issue.

The investigation also found that he incorrectly reported the driver’s gender 12 times and the incorrect race 19 times, but it was not clear whether that was intentional or an error.
