First, the PJ community is likely not in a "forgive & forget" mode when it finds folks stealing the honor of their brothers, living or departed.

Second, folks like this apologize all the time, then move on and start the same prevarications in a different place - and gain positions or some renumeration as a result. This guy is a Sgt on your PD, and this whole affair brings up Brady issues. He should be removed from the force, removed from LE work:

"Under Brady, evidence affecting the credibility of the police officer as a witness may be exculpatory evidence and should be given to the defense during discovery. Indeed, evidence that the officer has had in his personnel file a sustained finding of untruthfulness is clearly exculpatory to the defense."

You do yourself and your Dept a favor by riding this assclown out of LE on a rail.
You bring up a very serious issue. If a defense lawyer finds out about this, or someone who was convicted somewhat based on testimony from the officer in question, this could be very serious.

It is all about credibility. You usually find out that if a person lies or is dishonest in one part of their lives, they are dishonest and/or lie in other parts of their lives as well.
