Albany-- We've got more information now about Dougherty County School System Police Chief Troy Conley.
Conley twice sued his former employer, the Dougherty County Police Department, and twice walked away with taxpayer money as a settlement.
Conley claimed he was unfairly passed over for promotion to major because he's black. The County settled that lawsuit for $70,000.
Conley then filed as part of a second lawsuit after he was not named top candidate for the assistant police chief position. He claimed the person who got the job didn't have the required experience.
The trial court sided with the county, but Conley appealed, and the county settled for $2,500 a piece to Conley and the other plaintiff.
