ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The City of Albany fired two more 911 dispatchers for misusing the state's criminal justice information computer system. 

Jasmene  Ogletree and Natasha Hightower were terminated October 5th, for unauthorized access to the Georgia Crime Information Center.

In September, the city said that all dispatchers in the Albany 911 center will be investigated to see if there've been other cases of unauthorized computer use.

Two weeks ago, the city manager denied LaToya Smith's appeal of her firing. The city accepted Jeanita Fulmore's resignation. They admitted making numerous unauthorized checks of people on the Georgia Crime Information Center computer system.

Investigators are now checking GCIC records to see if any other operators misused the confidential system. Any 911 operator who improperly uses the state's computer information will be fired and could face criminal charges.
