After giving Chairman Eldrin Bell carte blanche over the Clayton County Police Department, our Board of Commissioners rescinded that order and opted to possibly reassign Police Chief Jeff Turner.
A Power Point presentation complete with pictures, was used to display the mismanagement allegations against Turner, listed in the Clayton News-Daily. A summary follows:
- Sept. 10, 2007: a Clayton County officer was arrested for attempting to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity using a CCPD laptop computer.
- Dec. 7, 2007: a Clayton County officer was terminated after admitting he had engaged the services of prostitutes both on and off duty. The audit claims that in October 2007, “allegations were lodged” against the same officer for allegedly having sex with a female suspect prior to transporting her to jail.
- May 2008: a female detective lodged a compliant of sexual harassment “to her immediate supervisor” and subsequently filed a sexual harassment suit against the county.
