SBPD officer suspended without pay after alleged misconduct

South Bend, Ind. On Wednesday, we learned the fate of a suspended South Bend police officer who is facing seven counts of alleged misconduct charges.

This all started last October when Theordore Robert allegedly began an unauthorized investigation into two cases that were being looked into by the department.

Wednesday the board of public safety met in the South Bend Central Fire Station on South Michigan Street to discuss what's next for Robert.

After about 15 minutes, they found that Robert did violate three of those counts.

Because of this, he will be suspended without pay for 120 consecutive days starting today.

And he will drop in rank from patrolman first class to patrolman second class for six months upon his return.

Since Robert has been suspended for some time now, the board recommends that, upon his return to duty, the department consider placing him in field training for a period of time.
