Records show no reviews for disgraced police chief

Posted Friday, June 14, 2013 --- 10:48 a.m.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Records show a former Wisconsin police chief accused of watching pornography with his officers didn't receive a performance review for more than 20 years.

Michael Cosgrove retired as chief of the Village of Butler Police Department in March. A Waukesha County Sheriff's Department report released earlier this month found Cosgrove and some of his staff regularly watched pornography at work.

The report says one officer called it "porn in the morn."

Village Administrator Jesse Thyes asked the sheriff's department in February to look into police management.

Cosgrove had been chief since 2005. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that he was supposed to have four reviews during his first 18 months on the job and annual reviews after that, but none were conducted.

Village President Richard Ensslin declined to comment.
