An investigation of a Schenectady police party featuring strippers should be wrapped up by early next week at the latest, Police Chief Mark Chaires said Wednesday.

Is it "off-duty" that people are confused with? Or maybe "no illegal activity" that people can't understand. To the best of my knowledge the city of schenectady doesn't own these guys (and/or girls). People do not have a right to know what happens after these men and women take their uniforms off. Plus , as far as we know this was not a police sactioned event, the city paid for none of this. This is co-workers having a good legal time together, nothing more. It's time for the folks at the gazette and some of its readers to get a hobby and stop worrying about what the police are doing when they are not working.

Once the police take off their uniforms and leave work. THEY ARE PRIVATE CITIZENS, and what they do in their own free time as private citizens is nobodies business as long as they are not breaking laws. BTW, there were designated drivers.

The problem is that the Department allows the Gazette to dictate discipline and policy. There is NO VIOLATION OF THE LAW. Chaires and McCarthy should tell this rag of a paper to go scratch. Unfortunately, EVERY time Kathleen Moore writes an article it elicits a response from the Department. Why not just say "these officers did nothing wrong, we have no further comment."
