Florida State University Police Chief David Perry Hired Amid Unethical And Unprofessional Conducts

Florida State University Police Chief David Perry Hired Amid Unethical And Unprofessional Conducts

It turns out that David Perry was hired by FSU when he was under investigation by South Carolina Department Of Law Enforcement for misconduct and unethical activity at the same time he was under audit at Clemson University.  Was he running from South Carolina?

The 278 page report about FSU Police Chief David Perry prepared by SCDLE is public record; the Clemson audit is also public record and turned up policy violations and demand for re-payment of misspent funds that were never repaid. 

Is integrity such a struggle?  Is it too much to ask that our institutions should do everything possible to recruit people who show evidence of intellectual competence, good judgment and integrity?  There should be greater selectivity of those who hold the public trust.  Integrity must be encouraged and betrayals of it must be rooted out with vigilance.

“ Nothing is corruptible except personal character that will not be corrupted”
