The Baytown Police Department Internal Affairs Division conducted a complete and thorough review of the June 2nd incident involving Officer Nathaniel Brown. After careful review, Chief Dougherty concluded that the actions of Officer Brown did not align with the professional standards and values, to which we hold all of our officers. Therefore, on Monday July 20th Officer Brown, who was a 9 year veteran of the department, was relieved of his employment with the Baytown Police Department. The Baytown Police Department takes allegations of wrongdoing or misconduct by our officers very seriously. The trust and confidence of our community is paramount and as such we hold our officers to the highest levels of integrity as well as moral, ethical and professional standards. Failure to adhere to those standards will not be tolerated and will be dealt with in accordance with the law. We ask that the community continue to place its trust and confidence in our organization and the men and women of the Baytown Police Department who don the badge and uniform every day and proudly serve with honor, integrity and professionalism.
