Female police captain files Greenwich bias suit

Greenwich

GREENWICH, Conn. (AP) — The Greenwich Police Department’s first female captain has filed a state discrimination complaint against top police officials.

Capt. Pamela Gustovich, a 27-year veteran of the Department, was the first woman to rise to the rank of captain in Greenwich when she was promoted in 2012.

Greenwich Time reports that details of the allegations to the Connecticut Commission of Human Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission remain confidential.

Police leaders say the accusations are baseless. Chief James Heavey said the town denies any discrimination or other illegal action by the Police Department or the town.

He says mediation failed to resolve the dispute.

Gustovich and her lawyer, Deborah McKenna of Stamford, declined to comment.
