(Hartford) - On Monday, February 4, 2008, at approximately 6:00 p.m., Sergeants of the Hartford Police Department's Internal Affairs Division (IAD) charged Hartford Police Sergeant Reginald Allen with one count of computer crime in the third degree, a class D felony. This charge stems from an investigation by the HPD's IAD into the alleged misuse of the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) data base and the release of such information to an unauthorized party.

Sergeant Allen, a seventeen year veteran (17) assigned to the Patrol Division, has been suspended without pay pending adjudication of the case and subsequent completion of the IAD investigation.

In commenting on the arrest, Hartford Police Chief Daryl K. Roberts said, "The Hartford Police Department recognizes and respects the privacy rights of all citizens and their expectation that their private information will not be misused. I will not tolerate the unauthorized release or abuse of secure data bases intended solely for law enforcement purposes"

Allen, who was booked at Hartford Police Headquarters, was released on a written promise to appear in Hartford Superior Court on February 11, 2008.
