BEND, OR -- Oregon State Police Captain William Fugate has resigned, two days after pleading guilty in Deschutes County to harassment for an incident involving his estranged wife. Eriks Gabliks, Director of the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST), says Fugate contacted the agency to surrender his certification. The move essentially removes his standing as a law enforcement officer.


Gabliks says, once the paperwork is completed, Fugate's name and information regarding the conviction will be added to a national database. If Fugate applies for another job in law enforcement, that agency will be directed to OSP for further details. Gabliks tells KBND News DPSST had planned to open an investigation on Fugate, but with the surrender of his certification surrender, it is no longer necessary.


Oregon State Police was unavailable for comment.

 

UPDATE 01/14/19: William Fugate was booked into the Deschutes County Jail on Saturday (pictured above), just after 4 p.m., to serve his two-day sentence for Harassment.
