Providence Officer Fired After Pleading Guilty to Charges

Scott Logan was suspended for 5 years for a weapons charge


A Providence police officer was fired after he admitted to charges of illegally possessing a gun with scratched out serial numbers and threatening superiors this week.

In exchange for his guilty pleas, 46-year-old Scott Logan was sentenced Thursday to a five-year suspended sentence for the weapons charge and home confinement for threatening three superiors.

Judge Robert Krause also ordered Logan to continue receiving substance abuse and mental health treatment.

Logan was indicted after a resident found a pistol with obliterated serial numbers inside his bag outside a police substation in July. He was arrested in October after a peer support officer reported that Logan had made threats against Maj. Thomas Verdi, Lt. Timothy O'Hara, and Sgt. Timothy McGann.

Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare confirmed Logan's termination.
