Chief Richard Gray


John Day Police Department
450 E. Main
John Day, OR 97845
Dear Chief Gray:
The Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST) has received your complaint, dated
February 5, 2016 alleging misconduct by Glenn Palmer, DPSST-certified officer currently serving as Sheriff of
Grant County, Oregon.
As you may know, the DPSST, in conjunction with the Board on Public Safety Standards and Training, is
responsible for training and certifying Oregons public safety providers, to include private security, private
investigators and polygraph examiners. DPSSTs jurisdiction is limited to the certification standards found in
Oregon law and rule (available for review on DPSSTs website: oregon.gov/DPSST).
The allegations made in your complaint have been reviewed and it has been determined that, if founded, these
issues may violate the Boards certification standards. Your allegations have been shared with Sheriff Palmer and
a copy of your complaint forwarded to the Department of Justice (DOJ). DPSST has recommended that the DOJ
conduct an investigation into these allegations and the results of that investigation forwarded to DPSST for further
review.

Sincerely,

Linsay Hale, Director


Professional Standards Division
