Arrow Coast Guard Academy department head removed for bullying

Coast Guard Academy department head removed for bullying
By: The Associated Press 5-31-18

NEW LONDON, Conn. — The U.S. Coast Guard Academy has demoted the head of its business school following an investigation that found that he had bullied a subordinate.

An academy spokesman tells The Day that Capt. Kevin Lopes was removed as head of the Management Department in April “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to effectively lead the department.”

The spokesman said the removal was “the product of no single incident.”

Lopes remains a member of the faculty at the New London school.

Lopes did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment on Thursday.

The spokesman says the academy received a report on Jan. 30 of bullying involving Lopes and initiated an investigation. The investigation, which began Feb. 27 and was concluded by March 26, found Lopes guilty of bullying.

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
