"This is a followup story to the report from Feb. 6 that revealed for the first time that a dozen officers had been disciplined or verbally admonished over allegations of misconduct, including sharing semi-nude photos of their colleagues without their knowledge or permission. The city also had paid $110,000 to a female officer who alleged harassment. Details of the findings of the three internal investigations are here.
Officer Bryan Pray, who received the stiffest punishment — a 10-day unpaid suspension — resigned two days after that story was published. And the state Department of Workforce Development determined there was probable cause to believe that former HR Director Vicky Schneider was retaliated against by then-Sheboygan City Administrator Todd Wolf after she raised concerns about the thoroughness of the probes.
The story was reported by Sheboygan Press reporter Maya Hilty and Wisconsin Watch’s Phoebe Petrovic." Originally published on February 27th, 2023.
