City terminates assistant police chief

May 19, 2004

Worth County -- The Sylvester City Council upheld the city's decision to fire the Assistant Police Chief. Charles Thurmond had appealed his termination.

Many people in Sylvester complained about Thurmond after a suspect died while Thurmond and two other officers were arresting him.

Last month the council found he didn't act quickly enough to help Herman Jackson get medical attention. Thurmond's appeal was denied in a unanimous vote this week.
