Chief has been here for over 15 years, and is an EXCELLENT part of this town. The Mayor, not so much. Never has there been this much controversy in SMithton untul him. And it's followed him from AG Edwards.
Thank You for the truth

The chief is one of the best. The mayor likes to stir the pot and cause trouble.

Well if she is tired of getting harassed, why doesn't she quit if its so horrible. Wouldn't it count as sexual harassment if she got undressed in front of another officer?

Did she undress in front of you? I think the town of Smithton can now move forward and hopefully they don't have anymore unneeded publicity on their police force. Enough is enough.

All the unneeded publicity is because of her

things like this never happened until the mayor or the female officer came here. Fire BOTH of them.

Hey Duh, ever hear of "Root Cause"?
This is because of the mayor, not the officer. Wake up and realize the truth. He denied this in the newspapers but get a copy of his deposition and see what he said. This is the same behavior he exhibited at his last employer.

You obviously have a problem with this officer (this and other posts). Could you advise why that is.

If it walks like a duck, sounds like a duck, it's a duck. Fire the entire police force and start over. So much entrenchment involed with your current force. The Police Cheif needs to move on. Sounds like the battle is harder on the inside the statiuon of the station vs. the outside- that is in the real world. He should have been gone 5 years ago. I know, I use to work for him.

Yes I can advise why "Smithton Resident." She is not a good officer. She was recently heard at a Smithton Establishment in saying I'm back to work, watch out Smithton. I just want to know how she can justify getting stumbling drunk at a Smithton bar, drive and then go out and write someone a DUI.

"She was recently heard?" What are you, her keeper? Do you focus on EVERY cop in town, or just her? I've never seen NOR heard of her driving away drunk from a bar, nor have I ever seen her acting as such. I know other cops in this town go out too, but for some reason your only focusing on HER. Is this because she is a WOMAN? I feel sorry for women these days, to go through crap like this. I say she stand up tall, keep doing her job and the heck with everyone else.

I agree Smithton Resident (I am also). The night in question from "the Truth" she was not driving that day...someone else was. She also was not inebriated. Its legal to go to a bar and order a drink folks. "The Truth" doesn't know what the hell they are talking about. They need to change their name.

How does Smithton Resident and Marine know what night I am talking about. No I don't focus on ever cop in town that is true and its not because she is a woman. The reason behind that is none of the other ones are off duty breaking up fights in a bar and threatening people (like she did Friday night at No Jacks, just ask the bartender) or doing stupid things that would get them fired if they (men) did the same things. She has that town by the balls. They are scared to fire her because she is sue happy. Can't wait to see how much her soon to be ex-husband gets from that sexual harassment lawsuit.

I concur, there has been another cop that's helped break up fights at that bar before, "just as the bartender." If she's there and happens to stop a fight fromk happening, what the heck is your deal? If she hadn't and let a supposed fight occur, than you'd be complaining that she doidn't do anything. I'd rather have someone off duty around then not at all, especially one that will help protect me or someone else whether she's on duty or off duty. Find another topic for yourself becuase you're exhausting this one.

Most police dept. policy states that if you have any alcoholic beverage in your system, you are forbidden from performing any duties as a police officer, on or off duty. I know of one officer that has been there while a fight broke out and that officer did nothing except by direction of a county deputy, detained an individual until police arrived. And that last officer I was talking about didn't threaten the parties involved, like she did. She thinks because she has a badge that she is all powerful and above the law. I just hope I'm around when she gets arrest for assault when she grabs someone in a bar. She has no business being an officer.

Sounds an awful lot like your going by hear-say, either that or your going to bars in Smithton alot. Good example of why people should judge for themselves in stead of what your doing. You say a whole lot in your posts without even knowing you are - especially that last one. Ya, I can really see her going around threatening people - she is the last person in that town that uses a badge as an ego trip or for power, so come off it. You have no business judging. Move out of your glass house first.
