Apparently Heber City police believe the can do whatever they want. It's a shame when you contact the Chief of police and you are lied to. Its sad when you Challenge him to find out the truth by one simple phone call and he refuses. He refused because he knew he was covering up a lie! If one of my employees was lying to me, and a person said he could prove the officer was lying through another law enforcement official. I would be interested in hearing the information? On the contrary he defended this officer, in my eyes that put him on the same level as the officer who was lying. They are called "Public Servants" For a reason. They are here to defend and protect us. Well a 4 year old little girl is the one who is suffering. They get paid to serve the community. When an officer is speaking, and he is speaking under the color of his uniform he is speaking in behalf of the entire police force. There is a code of conduct on an officer's behalf that he is sworn to abide by. Police officers are obligated to defend this code. Something is really wrong in Heber. Anyone else have a comment???

I definately agree with you. I think this guy has a seriouse integrity issue he needs to be delt with. I don't feel this guy knows what he is doing. He has some terrible storms brewing because of his dishonesty. The officers who work for him also reflect his sentiment and portray the same lack of respect for their office. Heber is next on the list like West Valley. If I were a Judge and Heber PD offered me a case I would be apprehensive about the facts. Heber Shake this apple from the tree he is only going to hurt your city.

Well making a decision on this takes a little more than what is upfront and seen at first. A little digging is needed to disclose the facts before jumping to a decision. Athough I don't agree with the methods used during this process. If someone is coached on how to subvert the system by an official who knows the system. The ability to thwart an investigation is much easier.

Lets say if the DCFS worker was biased against men or any class of people and provides counsel to the accused it is much easier for them to know exactly what to say. In this case I think it is entirely possible the DCFS worker may have had significant influence on this case.

The story starts with contact in early July for help and the DCFS worker threatened the person reporting when they tried to report. After that it is my opinion she provided this coersion to the children and the mother. There is the possibility she coached them off the record to help keep her out of trouble for failing to act on the initial report.

The person being enraged over the outcome is understandable they put trust in the system and from their prospective they were discriminated against based on class. I completely get why they would be upset.

THANK YOU!!!! You are 100% Absolutely Correct. There is a code officers have, same as the convict code. They call theirs "The Blue Curtain" I have had recent talks with the Attorney Generals Office and I am giving them name's. I promise I am not going to give up this Battle, I am going to win it!!! The truth is a very powerful force to have behind you, nothing can stand up to it. They let a Little 4 year old girl take the weight of their lie's. And it's not just people in the police force. It's the "good" People who want to use the L.D.S. church as a shield to hide behind. A way to project a good image of themselves but they are not good people at all. This little girl, and two other Women one who is disabled by MS were put on the sideline Because Mitchell Spensko was being Charged with a First Degree Felony Drug Charge. He is a Rat that is being protected at the expense drug of who knows how many people he has victimized. God Knows, Sick Bastard!!! These young women and children are going to get justice if I have to die for it! It's tough going it alone so I am soliciting the help of a very Good man, someone who will get peoples attention, Doctor Phil. I have absolute proof of police misconduct to Obstruction of Justice by the Heber Police Department. I am putting it out there, You will see, and I truly hope more people like you stand up. You are a good man, I commend you! God Bless

There was a post by a guy who said he wouldn't piss on Mitch Spensko if he found him starving, half dead and laying in a gutter. My original Question was HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE VICTIMS OF MITCH, word of warning if you have underage children and he has had access to them ask questions. You may be horrified by the answer you get!

There was another person that was beat by a Heber City Police officer, He was almost beat to death. The Heber City Police Chief lied and has been protecting is officer for years. The guy is in a care center with brain damage. He was a avid skier and instructor now he can hardly get out of bed. The former Heber City Police Chief lied and destroyed the video tape of the beating by the police office. The Heber City Police are no better than the West Valley Police.

Truth Seeker. PLEASE REPORT THIS TO THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE, The office is located at the Utah State Capital. Tell them you want to report a case of "Official Misconduct" By the Heber City Police Department. It actually should be "Obstruction of Justice" on behalf of all those involved, and Police Brutality. I know they are corrupt.But in order for anything to happen good citizens, and "Officer's" if there are any out there need to speak up. The Police have this thing called the "BLUE Curtain" where they have Convict Mentality and don't Rat. God is going to rain hell on the Police Department there. It's going to the media very soon, I believe in the people who have been helping me. So I am being quite while they see more and more of what the truth really is. You can report things anonymously. I say yo give this Person they beat a VOICE! You are not alone, Just like Mark Shurtleff, There Skeletons are coming out of the Closet, and no one is Safe! There really are people with Integrity in the Utah Justice System! There should be some in the Heber Police department. From what I see there's not! Thank you for posting. You are a Good man!

Yes heber police does violaye peoples rights among other stuff like eric mainord goes to jiffy lube in heber city to get his oil changed in his patrol car the drain plug could not be pulled it was tightened to tight mainord was informed of this. He proceeded in front of other customers that we were fucking liars and made a complete asshole out of himself thats a great public image by a public servant. There was complaints about this made nothing happened. Then awhile back yardly and otheres were caught having sex with underage girls in their patrol cars nothin happened. Thenbaitman planted meth in the smoke shop was caught on video tape and yet nothing happened. Then baitman and bunnell would harrass me everytime i went to town bunnell almost caused accidents 3 seperate occasion's just to turn around follow me to pull me over. I complained again nothing happened it continued it has stopped now they are gone thank god. Feel bad for vernal where they are now now employed. It a damn sham officers of the law that are sworn to up hold these laws can break them and nothing happens bit by god if we break em we're screwed. Just dont see the justice in all that make no sense but police think they are above the law they speed make illegal turns travel out of jurisdiction where they have no authority then they try and intimidate you in to guilt when you question it. Yeah thats how heber city police operate it needs to change they forget they work for us we pay their salary and yet they abuse the power givin to them seriously it nerds to change

Running into one bad one Egan was the worst. Pulls you over for no reason then searches the car and tells more conflicting lies in court. The judge comments on the coflilcting testimony and outright lies stating that good old boy Egan can act out his prejudice Stay out of Heber.

I have my own run ins with Eric mainord. He is one twisted individual. His misconduct and behavior has cost my 12 year old, friends, hardship, and emotional abuse. Yes I had an attorney, we got him temporarily suspended, then on office duty(so I'm told)...? It's is a fact that the city attorney himself is aware Mainord is a liar. And openly has questioned why he is still on the force. Like many of us...why?

Yes, Mainord must have been picked on a lot as a child. Just another one of the reject cops that get fired from other agencies and hired on by Heber City, what a joke.

I have a neighbor that has had plenty of encounters with this mainord. It's unfortunate but true that mainord, like many of the police, are simply not properly trained in many fields. And the public pays for it.

years ago. one of this heber cops was probably retarded. he took my id to check my history. few minutes later comes to my car, he mentions a name and asking if i go by that name with some warrants on his name. what kind of an idiot proceeds to ask questions about somebody else. my drivers license shows my name. can he spell. was he train and failed to read and write?
another officer showed up and after few minutes they were able to spell my name.
be careful also, one time one of the officers used my ex-wife's email to gather false evidence.

To answer your question; there is at least on good Man that is interested in the furthering of Justice for the people on the City's payroll. This would be the Heber City Attorney Mark Smeadley!! However, sadly as many of others (Apparently), my recourse at the time consisted of dealing with the Assistant Chief and Chief in trying to expose numerous violations of Policies and procedures by a certain officer. This Officer would be Mike Stowe (Who through research, was identified as one of the Officers sued in 2013). Therefore, I believe that common sense would only dictate that when a second written complaint regarding "Abuse of authority, and Civil Rights Violation) is received that the Command would at the very least conduct a very through investigation, just to C.Y.A.!! However, this was not the case. In fact rather I was yelled at numerous times by the Command Lt. I apparently did not have the right "Last name" for the Chief to take his time to talk to. As well barriers were in fact put up at every attempt to obtain information to properly defend myself.(All charges dismissed w/prejudice after nine continuances, and a year of my life).

The main issue is that the Felony Prosecutors in this County have no desire to actual obtain Justice, and keep society safe. Their only goal is to keep their conviction rate in the high 90% range through actual convictions, but, mainly plea bargains because of poor Police work initially done!! Every single member of the Police Department since the moment I walked in to file this complaint have treated me with disrespect, or outright rudeness. In fact the Chief hung-up the phone in one of the rare times he actually called me back. This would be considered poor Administrative handling of the public in the best of circumstances. And, the very worst when an officer that just coming off a Federal Rights Lawsuit, has second (And unknown how many more) complaints filed. However, as the Heber City Attorney is the person that has to approve G.R.A.M.A. request and other release of documents from the department, I had to discuss the matter with him. I walked into his office feeling that I would be treated the same way, and ready to defend my actions. Instead, what I discovered was a Man who treated me with respect and dignity, and helped immensely in obtaining documents that may have exculpatory evidence that have been helpful to the Defense (If the case had actually proceeded to trial). Although the Felony Prosecutors were required to give this information to the Defense (Brady V. Maryland 1963), instead they used every possible way to attempt to conceal or withhold evidence due to the poor Police work involved. I myself am not done with the Heber City Police Department as I now have plenty of time to let someone of authority know what is going on here!! However, with the bad, comes the good. And the Heber City Attorney is one of the most ethical, Moral, and respectful Attorneys I have ever encountered. I suppose my point is; that although it appears the Chief is letting the Officers abuse of citizen and authority get away from him, that there is a Public Official that is truly concerned with the meaning of Justice!!

There was only one good police officer in Heber I have known of. Sgt mike not sure of his last name. He was so awesome and helpful. Too bad he retired. He was truly a good guy.

I know who your talking about. His name is mike Clegg. He actually cared about people in this town. He didn't let his uniform go to his head. Where did all the good cops go?
