APD chief probe ends

October 7, 2004

Albany-- The city has closed it's investigation of improper hiring practices by former Chief Bobby Johnson. Chief Bob Boren says no more officers will be fired as a result of the probe.

Last week, WALB incorrectly reported as many as 14 officers may be fired as a result of the hiring issues.

Today Chief Boren told us the hiring of only nine officers was ever in question. Three were fired last week, three others had been previously terminated. The other three will be kept on the force.

Chief Boren says even though Former Chief Johnson overruled the hiring board and hired the three officers, they will be kept on the force since they have performed well since being hired.

Outside the hiring probe, six Albany Police officers have been arrested on various charges this year.

And one officer, Corporal Andrew Hayslip killed himself after murdering his four-year-old son in front of his son's school.
