Cranston Mayor Allan Fung announced today that he has engaged the services of an independent investigator to review the Cranston Police Department Internal Affairs' ongoing investigation into allegations of improper use of police authority. 

The investigation will be taken on by Louis F. Stephens, Sr., President of Sterling & Stephens Investigations and Consulting of Mountainside, NJ to conduct the review of the IA Report.

Fung says the independent consultant will not supplant the Internal Affairs investigation, but rather will assess the investigative process to confirm that all facts and circumstances are examined thoroughly and professionally.

Cranston Police are under investigation after two city council members said the number of parking tickets in their wards skyrocketed the day after a new police contract was voted down.
