LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —The Lafayette Civil Service Commission will meet Wednesday to make a decision on LPD Officer Ryan Black's alleged misconduct. Black is accused of misusing company equipment, according to Chief of Police Patrick Flannelly.

The private disciplinary meeting lasted about an hour and no other subject matter was discussed, other than Officer Black's alleged misconduct. Chief Flannelly said all disciplinary actions go through the same protocol.

"We use a progressive disciplinary model at LPD," said Flannelly. "I mean our ultimate goal is to ensure that we have compliance with our rules and regulations and that we are putting forth the best product that we can."

Officer Black received a Life Saver medal last December. 

According to Lt. Scott Galloway the meeting will be in the Lafayette City Hall Board of Works Room at 4 or 4:30 p.m. It is open to the public.
