Warwick council upholds chief's firing

WARWICK, GA (WALB) - The Warwick City Council backs up the mayor's decision to fire the police chief.

At an appeals hearing Thursday night, David Morris addressed allegations Mayor Juanita Kinchens made against him in a termination letter last week.

Four Warwick Police officers testified he did not force them to write a minimum number of tickets as the mayor claimed.

The city council voted two to two. Kinchens cast the deciding vote to fire Morris.

She told WALB News 10 on the phone after the vote, even if Morris did not have quotas for tickets, she believes he did not follow proper procedures when purchasing equipment and traveling for training.
