DPD commander demoted after domestic violence allegations

DETROIT (WJBK) -- The Detroit Police Department says they have demoted Commander James Moore two ranks to lieutenant.  The move comes after Fox 2 reported that Moore was under investigation by internal affairs for two alleged domestic violence incidents.

Earlier this month, Fox 2's Ronnie Dahl explained that the incidents reportedly took place over a 30 day period and involved Detroit police officer Deloma Stone.

"Based on the seriousness of these allegations, his role as commander was compromised in the police department and in the community.  Standards for appointees are higher than that of other ranking officers.  There are consequences for any allegation of inappropriate behavior.  We will investigate all reports of misconduct," Interim Chief of Police Chester Logan said in a statement.

"The chief's action is consistent with my desire to eliminate improper behavior in the police department and all City of Detroit departments," said Mayor Dave Bing.  "Employee misconduct will not be tolerated."

Moore told Dahl by phone that he wasn't romantically involved with Stone and had done nothing wrong.

Dahl also reported that while the case was presented to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, there would be no criminal charges because Stone was not "cooperating with the investigation".

The mayor's office says Moore has been with the police department since 1978 and was elevated to the rank of commander in 2007.
