News Tech: SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) — A city police officer in Louisiana is accused of submitting overtime reports for times when he was in Texas or working off-hours at a restaurant.
The police department did not immediately respond to an email Wednesday requesting comment. Records don’t show an attorney who could speak for Cisco, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
A federal grand jury indicted Shreveport Police Department Officer James Cisco, 51, on Wednesday on six counts of wire fraud, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Brandon Brown.
The indictment said Cisco falsely claimed overtime on at least eight days between Jan. 6, 2020, and Jan. 19, 2021, under a U.S. Department of Justice grant to improve safety in distressed, high-crime neighborhoods.
