Greenwood police officer fired




A Greenwood police officer was fired Friday after receiving dozens of reprimands, including for not completing police reports, arriving late to work and not investigating possible crimes.

The city police merit commission chose to end officer Paula Redd’s 14-year career with the department based on the request of Chief John Laut and the recommendations of four officers who worked with or supervised her.

Redd was suspended and reprimanded orally or in writing 44 times, with her first discipline happening while she was training as a new police officer at the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy in 2000.
