capture

Officer Travis McCabe was one of five current & former New Orleans Police Officers who were charged during the investigation of the death of Henry Glover, whose body was found shot and burned in the days following Hurricane Katrina.

From the New Orleans Police Department:

This morning, Superintendent of Police Ronal Serpas stated that due to violations of the New Orleans Police Department’s rules and regulations, Police Lieutenant Travis McCabe, a 16-year veteran of the police department, was dismissed effective today.

The administrative investigation conducted by the Public Integrity Bureau after Mr. McCabe’s convictions in Federal Court on the Henry Glover matter resulted in allegations of several departmental rule violations.  These violations specifically were:

Rule 2: Moral Conduct, paragraph 1 – Adherence to Law to wit: 18 United States Code 1623 Relative to “False Statements to a Grand Jury”.

Rule 2: Moral Conduct, paragraph 1 – Adherence to Law to wit: 18 United States Code 1519 Relative to ‘Obstruction of a Federal Investigation”.

Rule 2: Moral Conduct, paragraph 1 – Adherence to Law to wit: 18 United States Code 1001 Relative to ‘False Statements”.

Rule 3: Professional Conduct, paragraph 1 – Professionalism.

Superintendent Serpas said, “After a complete review of both investigations, I determined it was in the best interest of the New Orleans Police Department and the citizens of New Orleans to dismiss Mr. Travis McCabe.  There is zero tolerance in this organization for misconduct.  When an officer betrays the public’s trust, swift and decisive actions will be taken.  We will continue to build the public’s trust with accountability, transparency and integrity.”

Each violation of Rule 2; Moral Conduct, paragraph 1; Adherence to Law, was sustained and Mr. McCabe was dismissed from the New Orleans Police Department on each violation.  Mr. McCabe’s violation of Rule 3; Professional Conduct, paragraph 1; Professionalism, was also sustained and he was disciplined with a five (5) working day suspension for that violation.
