An audit has found that a Greenwood Police Department officer who already was recommended for firing did not follow up on additional reports of possible crimes she was assigned to look into.
Officer Paula Redd already faced departmental charges for repeatedly being late to work, not properly following up on one case and violating other rules. Chief John Laut has asked the police merit commission to fire her. A hearing to consider his request was delayed this week and is now set for June 19.
She now faces a total of five departmental charges stemming from multiple violations, including four new violations the chief filed this month.
