Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon
​The Phoenix Police Department's
Professional Standards Bureau has completed an internal investigation into allegations that Phoenix Police Officer Jeff Gordon engaged in "inappropriate contact" while on duty. 
 
But the reports detailing what got Gordon, who is the son of Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, in trouble won't be available until early next week, a police spokesman tells New Times.  

Police have not released details of who Gordon engaged in inappropriate contact with, or what discipline the cop faces.

The mayor's son, a six-year veteran of the PPD, was placed on paid administrative leave after allegations of "inappropriate contact" (read sexual activity) with someone while he was on duty.

"As Mayor, I cannot comment on a pending Police Department personnel matter. I can comment as Jeff's father. I love my son very much. I've always been proud of his unblemished record and his 6 years service to our community. I have and will continue to support him through these allegations, as any dad would do for his son."

Phoenix police officials started investigating the junior Gordon in late December or early January. The investigation was delayed after Jeff Gordon -- who was installing hardwood floors at his home while on leave -- accidentally severed some of his fingers.

Jeff is one outstanding police officer. Anyone who knows him would agree 100%. The city of Phoenix will be lucky to have him back, once the bogus allegations are dealt with.

Officer Gordon has selflessly Served his community and city without flaw for six years now. The anti police bloggers in here seem to forget how even cops are human. He will take responsibility for what he is accused of and he will move on, serving our community. God Bless all police officers.

The commenters are correct: you need 20 years and 20 minutes to obtain a complete pension.

Those are fair, accurate and precise statements.

Like father, like son. A perfect example of nepotism failing.

You cannot get a full pension until you've completed a full career, 6 years of service is hardly enough time for a full pension. Medical retirement doesn't yield a full pension either, it's still based on years of service. Besides the fact that this was not an on duty accident, he was on paid administrative leave, that's not the same. Maybe you should get your facts straight before making an asinine assumption.

Get your threads straight before making asinine starments under them.

He'll end up getting a full pension for life right after he resigns due to an injury suffered while on the job.

What injury? Did he sprain his dick?

Walter, I don't think an injury that occurred while installing hardwood floors at his home while on forced, paid, administrative leave will qualify him for a full disability pension. Unless he is injured to the point that he can't qualify with his gun (as is Jason Schechterle) he won't be eligible for any form of disability, much less a life long pension.
