Ramapo, NY – Police Officer Baile Glauber, who has created quite a stir since starting to patrol in June, is doing temporary desk duty now after apparently telling the brass she’s had a reoccurrence of an ankle injury.
Glauber’s ankle injury first occurred at the beginning of her Rockland Police Academy training, causing her to miss nearly six weeks of physical training during the six months at the academy from January to June.
She ended up meeting the basic physical requirements at the academy and graduating.
Glauber, like all rookies, is probationary and must patrol with an experience officer before she can go solo. She’s been patrolling with another officer since June, but not the Monsey or Hasidic Jewish communities.
She was assigned to desk duty this week, Capt. James Quinn said, adding he cannot discuss an officer’s medical issues. Glauber worked today, Quinn said.
Glauber, a divorce mother with a 9-year-old son, doesn’t work the Jewish Sabbath – Friday nights and Saturdays – for religious reasons. She probably will seek the Jewish high holidays off, starting with Rosh Hashana on Monday evening.
Academy officials said that she walked to classes during religious holidays.
