Police officer suspended, faces firing

A 13-year veteran of the Greenwood Police Department has been suspended and the chief is asking that she be fired after repeatedly showing up late for work and violating multiple other departmental rules.

Officer Paula Redd has been suspended with pay until a hearing by the police merit commission May 8, when the board will consider Chief John Laut’s recommendation to fire the officer.

Redd has 20 days to file any statements in her defense or to dispute the allegations of repeated tardiness and other violations. She also would be able to speak at the hearing. She could resign and avoid a hearing.
