So the Question of the day becomes at least for a group of former law
enforcement officers over breakfast. Where is P.O.S.T. Council on this. Yes
Peace Officer Standards and Training. Where are the standards? A Summit County
Deputy Sheriff was arrested for DUI a Class 'B" misdemeanor and P.O.S.T
suspended him immediately. No Peace officer authority no ability to work. He was
subsequently found NOT GUILTY, but the P.O.S.T. Suspension was not lifted and he
is still not allowed to return to work...What does this have to do
with that? Well you have a Sheriff, his Chief Deputy, and his Range/Training
officer all having been charged by the Utah Attorney General with multiple
FELONIES each, not 'B' Misdemeanors FELONIES. What has issued forth
from P.O.S.T.? NOTHING... PURE SILENCE...So back to the question of the
day, ARE THERE ANY STANDARDS OF CONDUCT FOR Utah Peace Officers, or NOT?
This does not give me confidence that the residents (and law enforcement
especially) are capable of handling Bears Ears.
Welcome to the wonder world of Southeastern Utah.
""The board believes that placing these officers on administrative leave
at this time would create an undue public safety risk for county
residents."Sounds like these guys ARE an undue public safety
risk for county residents.
This is a poorly written article. I have to read 5 paragraphs to finally find
out what charges were filed. Also, at the end it states, "the attorney
general's office had finished its investigation and found no allegation of
wrongdoing, according to the charges." If no allegations were found, why
were charges filed in the first place? The "County commissioners" can
file charges, rather than a prosecutorial agency? Very confusing article.
I would not like someone facing felony charges to come to my house to
investigate a crime. The Feds have nothing to do with this, the charges were
brought by Reyes, not exactly a raving lib.
Innocent till proven guilty!
The problem is that the state and federal government is trying anything they can
to railroad San Juan County government.
There is something fundamentally wrong with this.
And Sean Reyes the Utah Attorney General is OK with them remaining on duty??
