Yet another Town of Beloit Police Officer is under investigation after a heated discussion Monday night with Town Administrator Bob Museus.

The brief discussion was caught on video tape by the officer's wife, with Museus heard ordering her out of the meeting, and threatening the officer with suspension. Museus says, after a year involving an officer's retirement one day before a disciplinary meeting, another reaching a settlement with the town after being accused of disloyalty, several others disciplined, and even the chief being accused of discrimination, public perception is a concern.

Museus expresses hope a new sergeant hired Monday, Laura Palmer from the Beloit Police Department, will help build solid supervision for the department.

He says the department has a lot of good people, just some have disagreements. does not condone or review every comment. Read more in our Commenter Policy Agreement
