Detective Decommissioned After Questions Of On-Duty Activities
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A detective with the Metro Nashville Police Department has been decommissioned after officials questioned if he was devoting his entire work time to his job.
A police department spokesperson said Detective Jacob Pilarski was decommissioned February 7 pending an investigation from the Office of Professional Accountability.
An officer reported seeing Pilarski meet with a woman in his cruiser at Shelby Park. Witnesses said the detective met with the woman a number of times.
The District Attorney's office issued a statement, saying, "We so far understand that any meetings took place outside of the scope of this employee's work hours… and we await the findings of the police department's review before determining what, if any, action is appropriate."
Detective Pilarski was hired in May 2001 and honored for his bravery in 2004 after he was shot on duty.
