The Lansing Police Department fired an officer Tuesday following two investigations and a trial. Lori Williams, an eight-year vet of the force, was improperly using the department's computer system to look up information about her husband. State Police investigated the case and a jury found her guilty. The chief fired Williams after an internal investigation.
Interim Chief Teresa Szymanski told wilx.com "This by far is the toughest decision I've had to make in my almost 24 years here at the LPD. I am very disappointed in the conduct of Officer Lori Williams. We take these things very seriously at the LPD. And we are troubled tonight by this incident."
Williams had been on administrative leave since April, when the three-year investigation ended.
