I-Team: Cranston police captain returns to work

A Cranston police captain is back on the job.

The NBC 10 I-Team revealed Todd Patalano was on administrative leave with pay for two years only because a hearing on a complaint against the captain hadn't been scheduled.

The I-Team reported that Patalano was paid $98,626.22 in 2012 and $99,368.28 in 2013.

Cranston officials told the I-Team that because of the Law Enforcement Officer's Bill of Rights, they can't discuss what happened to the charges brought against Patalano.

In Feb. 11, 2011, a disciplinary complaint was filed by the city of Cranston against Patalano. The complaint, according to a court document, involved Patalano's handling of civilian complaints made against the department.

After the complaint was filed, Patalano demanded a hearing under the Law Enforcement Officer's Bill of Rights.

Subsequently, 13 days of evidentiary hearings were held, but for some unknown reason, the hearings were recessed and never rescheduled.
