ALBANY, Ore. (AP) - A lawsuit filed by a police officer against the city of Albany has been settled out of court for $225,000.

The Albany Democrat-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1fFDxEZ ) that officer Steve Corder filed a complaint in 2012 claiming that he hadn’t been promoted because he had repeatedly called for the Albany Police Department to address a backlog of uninvestigated sex crimes.

Corder’s complaint argued that the department’s mismanagement of the cases threatened public safety. In a press release issued Monday, Albany officials continue to deny the allegations listed in the lawsuit, but say they are glad to have reached an agreement.

Corder joined the Albany Police Department in 1993. He currently works in the patrol division and plans to continue his service with the department.
