Jamal Thalji and Curtis Krueger report:
Officer Christopher Dixon went on trial last week on charges that he rear-ended a van with his marked St. Petersburg police cruiser, then sped off.
The trial exposed some embarrassing revelations for the St. Petersburg Police Department when Dixon testified that he disabled the tracking device on his police cruiser several times so that his superiors couldn’t tell where he was or how fast he was going.
Other officers also testified that “it’s no secret” how to disable the devices.
