Pullman PD Sergeant Accused Of Custodial Sexual Misconduct Resigns
One Day Before Investigation Interview
PULLMAN, WA – The Pullman Police Sergeant charged with Custodial Sexual Misconduct In The First Degree has resigned from the Pullman PD.
A press release says Dan Hargraves’ resignation came on the 26th, one day before he was scheduled to be interviewed by Pullman PD investigators to determine whether he had violated department policy. The investigation proceeded without his statement and concluded that he violated a number of Pullman Police Department policies, including involvement in criminal conduct, failure to activate his body-worn camera as required, failure to make proper notifications when transporting a female, and improper treatment of persons in custody.
The arrest came after Pullman Police Chief Gary Jenkins asked the Washington State Patrol to investigate the accusations of a female WSU student.
The press release goes on to say Chief Jenkins will be submitting a notice to the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission that Hargraves separated from service due to “disqualifying conduct”. That will initiate a process to decertify Hargraves as a peace officer in the state of Washington. If it happens, the information will be in the National decertification Index and can be seen by all law enforcement agencies nationwide.
