More officers investigated for working other jobs on duty

May 24, 2005

Albany- It's been more than a month since a 23-year veteran Albany Police officer was indicted for working two other security details at Krystals and the South Slappey Village while he was on duty as a police officer.

Now more officers are under investigation for the same thing.

"I heard basically what you've heard, but have not seen the document therefore I cannot comment because I would be speaking out of term if I did," said Lemuel Edwards, Interim City Manager.

WALB obtained a letter dated May 6 to Police Chief Bob Boren.

It says "As you know we have been asked to look into allegations that some Albany Police officers were working secondary employment jobs while on their regular shift for the Albany Police Department."

The police chief and city officials won't tell us which officers or exactly how many are being investigated for working other jobs on the clock.

City attorney Nathan Davis wouldn't release the list or tell us how many officers saying the list is part of the investigation. The GBI requested files for officers from April 1, 2004 through April 1, 2005.

Boren wouldn't comment on camera, but he did say he sent the GBI all the information they requested.

A dozen Albany police officers have been indicted or arrested in the past 13 months. Three more officers were fired in September for lying on their applications.
