Police board to review findings




A Greenwood board did not follow the law when members agreed in a private meeting last week to fire a city police officer, a state official said.

Today, the five-person appointed board will meet again in a special session to review the findings of the disciplinary case against Greenwood officer Paula Redd, vote if the written findings are acceptable, and, if approved, sign them, said Linda Meier, the board’s attorney.

That action would be the final step in terminating Redd, Greenwood city attorney Krista Taggart said. Redd still has 30 days to appeal the decision, she said.
