Members Of The Florida ACLU For The Tallahassee Chapter Are Currently Requesting Public Records For The New Year From The Tallahassee Police Department.
According To A Public Request By A Local Member, The Tallahassee Legal Advisor Rick Courtemanche (Rick.Courtemanche@Talgov.com) Stated Upon Request That “No Tallahassee Police Officers Were Fired Or Arrested During 2013″. There Were No Records Found In The Department For The Parameters Of The Request.
Many people find this interesting among the local citizens, attorneys and news media….With A Department Of 350+ Officers/Employees….Not One Officer Was Arrested Or Even Fired From The Department Last Year! This is while several of the same names of corrupt and dirty cops keep coming up in complaints, lawsuits and media stories. Several Dirty Cops Are still working in the department. Numerous Scandals have existed in recent years with the Rachel Hoffman killing, Going Out Of Police Jurisdiction For A Burglary And The Latest With The Christina West Beating. In Fact, All Three Of Those Instances Involved The Grand Jury With The Focus Of The Matter Being The Negligence And Incompetence Of Our Local Police Department.
Don’t you think that at least 1% of the Department for 3 or 4 Officers Should Have At Least Been Fired Or Arrested To Clean Up This Department That Has Been A Lightning Rod For Scandals In Recent Years For Public Corruption And Cover-ups? It Seems Like The Tallahassee Blue Wall Does Exist Because Not One Officer Was Fired Or Arrested In The Department Last Year! Hopefully, The New Police Chief Michael DeLeo can make some changes in the upcoming New Year And Clean Up The Department by taking out the trash.
Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo’s E-mail Is Michael.deLeo@talgov.com, And His Department Telephone Number Is 891-4341 If You Wish To Discuss The Problems Within The Police Department. The Actions Of This Police Chief have yet to be seen. We find it unfortunate that he hasn’t let several people go already that have tainted the badge and image of our local police department for not upholding their duties of ethical conduct…Former Chief Dennis Michael Jones certainly didn’t cut the mustard as he’s obviously no longer chief for these reasons.
