Spanish Fork police chief decertified for shoplifting, lying
Council also votes to decertify Grantsville police chief
Grantsville's mayor submitted two letters to the council in support of the chief.
The council, however, was mixed on whether to hand down the recommended three-year decertification or an 18-month punishment. Some felt there were aggravating circumstances in the case and others believed it was an accident and misunderstanding.
Other law enforcers on Thursday were disciplined for offenses ranging from DUI to domestic violence. A Salt Lake police officer, who has since resigned from the department, had his certification suspended for two years after showing up to a crime scene with a blood-alcohol content of 0.16, nearly twice the legal limit.
Dave Layton was at home and on-call at the time, when he was called out to a shooting in downtown Salt Lake City and drove his patrol vehicle to the scene.
