Suspended Chicopee police detective Michael Gendron, accused of a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old, faces disciplinary hearing →
Police detective Michael Gendron has been suspended without pay amid allegations he engaged in a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old girl.
Chicopee Police Chief William Jebb said Gendron, 43, was placed on suspension when the department was informed of the accusations leveled by the girl’s parents. They sought and won an emergency restraining order on her behalf last week, and Chicopee District Court Judge Elizabeth Sanabria-Vega extended it for one year on Friday over Gendron’s objections. The order includes a mandate that prohibits Gendron from possessing a firearm.
Gendron is unmarried and has an otherwise clean disciplinary record, according to Jebb.
