Dormer shakes up Suffolk police department
Suffolk Police Commissioner Richard Dormer is shaking up his department's homicide squad, reassigning the head of the unit and transferring out another decorated detective.
"It's a good way to get fresh ideas. These transfers are no reflection on the work of the people being transferred," Dormer says. "They've all done an excellent job in their respective commands."
Police union sources tell News 12 the moves were triggered by a dispute over standby pay last year and allegedly because of a crime scene earlier this year where the body of a man stabbed to death in Brentwood was left uncovered for hours.
