The chief of the Detroit Police Integrity Unit, one of two DPD officials charged in a bribery scheme

The chief of the Detroit Police Department’s Integrity Unit, Lieutenant John F. Kennedy, is one of two Detroit police officials indicted Wednesday in connection with a bribery scheme.

Officials said Kennedy, 56, of Rochester Hills, was serving as a supervisor in charge of the department’s integrity unit when he conspired with Officer Daniel S. Vickers, 54, of Livonia, to commit bribery.

The DPI’s Integrity Unit is responsible for investigating reports of violations of the law and professional misconduct by police officers and other city employees, according to the statement.

Kennedy is accused of using his influence and promise as a supervisor to persuade other officers to make referrals to a towing company. Officials said it violated city law and Detroit police policy.
