Galveston Texas Police Chief on Paid Leave for Alleged Sexual Harassment and Racial Discrimination

PorrettoThe police chief of the Galveston Police Department, Henry Porretto,  has been placed on paid leave since September 16th for an “employment related issue.” Although there has been no official reporting, multiple allegations have surfaced, including racial discrimination and sexual harassment of a female fellow officer. No charges have been brought up however and the city of Galveston has named David Smith, a 35 year city employee, to serve as the Acting Police Chief until the inquiry has concluded.

Who knows if Police Chief Porretto will ever be charged with violation of workplace ethics, sexual harassment, or discrimination. Does the phrase Porretto coined, “Protect With Respect” truly represent his own convictions?
