    Looking for data, been googling, but curious if someone can help me out.

    Looking for statistics police officerresignation in lieu of prosecution for crimes committed.

    Anyone with ideas? I looked at thefbi site with no joy.

    Best guess is that these numbers wouldnt be publicized much, but am curious if someone has a source.

    Virginia Dept of Human Resource Management (VDHRM) probably has the data, but I'm not sure how you will get it (as in how it may be broken down). Best suggestion is to contact them (phone is better than email) to find out what they have & how you can access it.

    This is information that will likely be protected by personnel rules.

    You might get it at state level, without names, perhaps, if you're researching under the tutelage of a respected professor at a university, for instance, but it's likely not going to be available, except anecdotally, elsewhere.

    You might also try the National Association of Chiefs of Police (I think that's their name; I can't verify because I'm having computer line issues) in Alexandria, VA.

    Keep hunting. Don't be too surprised if none turns up.

    Essentially what you're asking is a statistic that would not be a public record. By this I mean, since there was no prosecution, there won't be court records. Resignations are a personnel matter. The Virginia Freedom of Information Act exempts many, maybe all, personnel file contents from disclosure. 2.2-3705.1(1).
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.
