Cops Quietly Reinstated, Promoted After Being Caught In Rogue Officers' Scandal

The Chicago Police Department has quietly returned the badges of three police officers relegated to desk work after being caught up in the Special Operations Section scandal.

Police officials said Monday that Greg Insley, Dave Case and Paul Zogg are returning to police work. For Case, reinstatement brought a promotion from sergeant to lieutenant.

Insley was stripped of his police duties after a report with his name on it was falsified to hide an illegal 2004 raid by the special operations section. The report listed Insley as one of the arresting officers.

Insley was able to prove he wasn't on duty the night of the raid.

Members of the Special Operations Section have been accused of kidnapping, robbing and committing home invasions over several years when they were supposed to battling street gangs.
