A Glendale lieutenant will resign from the Police Department next year as part of a settlement with the city in a lawsuit in which she alleged gender discrimination and sexual harassment.
Glendale Police Lt. Susan Hayn, who oversees the Violent Crimes Bureau, agreed to leave the department on Dec. 30, 2013 and not test for the higher position of captain while she continues her work, according to the settlement. The city will also pay Hayn and her attorneys $150,000.
“The city did nothing improper with respect to Ms. Hayn,” City Atty. Mike Garcia said in an email. “This settlement not only avoids the cost and risk associated with trial, but provides other valuable consideration to the City.”
