On June 14 2003 I was wrongfuly terminated by the Gwinnett County S.O. after being cleared in a internal affairs investigation. The former Chief Deputy terminated me and still to this day I cannot get a straight answer from Gwinnett County as to why I was fired. In the state of Georgia if a Law Enforecement Officer is terminated by a department that Officer will be placed under a Post Investigation. The Investigation is automatic and it is just something you have to accept. While I was under Post Investigation I was basicly blackballed no department would hire me under investigation even though my certification was still valid. This was a nightmare let me tell you , finally after 1 year and 3 months I was cleared by Post and I thought that I could put this behind me I was told by Post that the reason it took so long was that their was not enough Post Investigators. However If I pull up my training record on the Post website it states that I have had a Past Post Case and because of this I am constantly having to keep explaining what happened with Gwinnett County S.O. I do not think that this is fair , if I have been cleared and the case is over then I do not understand why it has to be displayed like that. It is already hard enough to get a job without having to deal with this. I am sure that I am not the only Georgia Officer who feels this way and if so please speak your mind freely on this matter. In my opinion the Past Post Case is my personal buisness and if I want someone to know about it I will tell them I was cleared and my certification is valid that is all that matters. I wonder if their is any way to stop this policy that Post has I am open for ideas thank you.
No announcement yet.
