Galveston Municipal Police Association
News Release
Thursday, June 16, 2011

The Galveston Municipal Police Association has accused Police Chief Charles Wiley of violating the city’s ethics rules when he assigned on-duty officers to guard a councilman’s property last November. Complaint

According to a complaint filed with the city ethics commission today, GMPA said that the Chief misused city personnel and equipment when he assigned officers who were being paid by the City of Galveston to guard the councilman’s property on the seawall during the Lone Star Rally in November.  There were approximately seven officers who worked the detail. 

Michael Gray, president of GMPA, who signed the complaint, said that the officers were not permitted to answer any calls or perform any other police function other than guarding the councilman’s business.  The complaint did not name the city councilman who owned the business.

 GMPA asked the City Ethics Commission to hold a hearing and determine whether the Chief violated the city’s code of ethics.
