APD Chief faces suspension


November 7, 2002

Albany-- City Commissioners are concerned about the effect Albany Police Chief Bobby Johnson's suspension will have on his department.

Commissioner Henry Mathis, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, says Chief Johnson's suspension is troubling. Chief Johnson will be suspended five days without pay, for not reporting a traffic accident he had in his city car.

"I think this compounds the morale problem," said Commissioner Mathis. "So it is a very, very serious matter. When you look at who did what, it make it more serious than if an officer was at fault."

Chief Johnson will be suspended December 2nd through 6th.
