NBCConnecticut.com

The Bridgeport Police Hispanic Society told Mayor Bill Finch that Assistant Police Chief James Nardozzi asked a graduate faculty member of John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York to conduct ethics training sessions last month.

A group of Hispanic police officers in Bridgeport is demanding an assistant chief resign over accusations he allowed a college professor to use an ethnic slur in a lecture about ethics.

The Bridgeport Police Hispanic Society told Mayor Bill Finch that Assistant Police Chief James Nardozzi asked a graduate faculty member of John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York to conduct ethics training sessions last month.

The Connecticut Post reports they're accusing Nardozzi of saying nothing when the professor repeatedly used an ethnic slur referring to Hispanics.

Police officials, including Chief Joseph Gaudett, did not respond to requests for comment.

A spokeswoman for John Jay College said the school has no information about the allegations.

Finch said he asked Gaudett to review the incident and report back to him.
