1995 Indecent Assault of a Child

In 1995, a 12 year-old child made a criminal complaint against Rose for Indecent Assault and Battery on a Child Under Fourteen.[1]

Response Timeline

The charges were dropped when the victim recanted.[4]

On June 17, 1996, the Internal Affairs department noted that the victim was unwilling to cooperate with the investigation, but reported that there was enough evidence to support the allegations.[1]

Rose was placed on administrative duty and was relieved of his weapon.[1]

2006 School Bus Incident

On March 31, 2006, a school bus driver argued with a juvenile over his use of a cell phone. The driver ordered the boy off the bus, but he refused as he wanted to exit at a later stop. A police crossing guard ordered the boy to leave the bus. Rose arrived, and claimed that the boy struck him in the face while making a dismissive motion with his hand. Rose allegedly pulled the boy from the bus and threw him on the ground. Rose brought the boy home and met with the mother.[5]

After their meeting, the mother filed a complaint, stating that Rose had verbally and physically abused her son, and that Rose threatened to file charges if a complaint was made.[5]

Response Timeline

Rose was investigated for violation of policies regarding Use of Force, Respectful Treatment, and incident reporting.[5]

On December 29, 2006, a review by the Internal Affairs department determined the use of force to be proper, found the Respectful Treatment claim to be not sustained, and sustained the allegation regarding incident reporting.[5]
