GBPD officer resigns following misconduct investigation

Local News

The Green Bay Police Department has uncovered what it believes is misconduct on behalf of one of its officers.

The officer, Michael Rahn has since resigned from the Department. 

He was part of the Department for three years until resigning in March. 

There is an internal investigation into Rahn providing false information in a police report.

The report involved use of force during a traffic stop.

When the Department went back to look at the dash cam video involved in the incident, they noticed the video and arrest report did not match.

Rahn was awarded a Medal of Valor back in December of 2016 for saving some people in a burning building.

He has been involved in about 300 arrests since being on the force.

Now all of his arrest reports will be reviewed again by the Department. 

Chief Andrew Smith says the FBI is a part of the investigation.

“As well as the State Department of criminal investigation and they are both conducting investigations with us into possible charges,” Smith said.

He also continued to say, “Ranging from conduct unbecoming an officer to possible federal civil rights violations for false arrest.”
