Katy,maybe her name is Katy,ever think about that? You're probably not the only "Katy" around.If you want to serve the families to the best of your ability maybe you ought to risk sticking your neck out and speaking out against this kind of activity that goes on in the agency that you work for.

First, the policmen were "victims" of this scam too. They donated $100 each to over 30 kids at DHS for x-mas presents. No one wants these scumbags prosecuted more that JPD.
Unfortunately, a DHS manual is not "Law" and one cannot be prosecuted for violating policy, fired yes. The call as to whether or not to prosecute is the prosecutor's not the policemen's.
Credibility problem - JPD? beacause they were sued? You are an idiot. Police Departments get sued all the time by guilty POS's. Losing the suit is what matters and JPD has not lost one in many years.
Lastly, Perrin had two oponents, not one.

The whole thing is really sad that the kids are the ones who will suffer.

I think you're being completely ridiculous. Just because we happen to share a very common name means absolutely nothing. And, yes, my name is Katy. You're being totally neurotic and seem to be looking for attention. Nobody is trying to pull you into anything, though it looks like you're trying to put yourself in the middle of something that has nothing to do with you. I'm just sitting here laughing at your self-importance. It's time to grow up. Really. You're making yourself look like a nut.

I find it troubling that you use words idiot, when you do not know the law, i do not have time to post all of the laws but below is a start. As far as Police Departments getting sued all the time, in general, they are exempt from being sued unless they conspire to violate an individuals civil rights which started with Monroe V. Pape ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1961.
There are notable exceptions such as in this link: http://www.iscfmma.com/ISCFNewsJulyAug05.htm
an exerpt: VALDOSTA — A Lowndes County jury awarded the owners of a Remerton bar $900,000 after a six-day trial in a federal civil lawsuit against former Remerton police officers Tuesday. Herbie's Hideaway, LLC and William Spell, who owned the bar with his son Romain while it was open, filed suit on the basis that former Police Chief Mike Yates, former officer Terry Griffin and former investigator Mike Hattaway used police power to harass the business, plaintiffs' attorney Jim Tunison said---After Griffin and Yates left the force, court documents say police continued to harass the business with noise ordinances and harassing police conduct. Because of the excessive policing, patrons were deterred from frequenting the business, resulting in the demise of Herbie's.
As far as Perrin, I stand by my statement whether and he had one or five opponents is irrelevant. Although this is not related, the citizens approved a 1/2% tax for public safety and nothing was said about purchasing and building a new police station. Bait and switch, what is this man, a banker? I look forward to the next election for mayor of Jonesboro. I expect a robust discussion of the relevant topics, not a "neclear" war.
As far as laws concerning public employees they start with this statute:
21-8-304. Prohibited activities
(a) No public official or state employee shall use or attempt to use his or her official position to secure special privileges or exemptions for himself or herself or his or her spouse, child, parents, or other persons standing in the first degree of relationship, or for those with whom he or she has a substantial financial relationship that are not available to others except as may be otherwise provided by law.
This goes on and if you can read, write, and understand the english language, you can see these things in law, not just a personnel manual.
Now who is the idiot?
It is better to remain silent and be thought an idiot than to speak up and remove all doubt.
