Seven more City workers named in the District Attorney’s report will be suspended effective immediately, pending further investigation. The Commissioner’s Office, in conjunction with the Office of the Inspector General and the Chief Integrity Officer, will determine what, if any, further action should be taken.
“This case highlights many failings of DHS, but we must never forget our heroes,” said Mayor Nutter. “People who are working day in day out with the toughest issues imaginable. People such as Trina Jenkins, Catherine Mondi, John Dougherty and Philip Coppola – public servants who took action above and beyond the call of duty in the pursuit of safety and justice for children. I want to thank them for their service.”
