According to a press release issued by Prince George’s County Police Department (PGPD), Corp. Dexter Shin, an officer with the department, was indicted on one count of misconduct in office by a grand jury on May 23.

Shin, who joined the department in 2017, struck a pedestrian in Laurel on March 3 while driving his police cruiser. He did not report the incident, nor did he ensure that the pedestrian received proper medical care, according to an investigation by the PGPD Internal Affairs Division. Shin was suspended from the department following the incident.

“The allegations against this officer are deeply disturbing and do not align with the ethical standards to which we hold our officers and do not represent the hardworking women and men of this agency. If [the charges are] proven true, I would also advocate he be held accountable to the fullest extent possible in the administrative process,” PGPD Chief Malik Aziz wrote, in the release.
