Board OKs suspension for officers

JAMIE DUFFY | The Journal Gazette

The Fort Wayne Board of Public Safety on Thursday approved three officer suspensions during its meeting. 

Officer Curt Crouch received a three-day suspension for not obeying department policies/procedures and back-ups and assistance. Officer Christopher McAfee was given a one-day suspension for an unauthorized absence and officer Amber Woodson a one-day suspension for investigative negligence. The board also denied Woodson's appeal. 

The board approved a special police commission for Gary Halter of Planning Services and renewed the commissions for Jessica Bachert of Animal Care & Control and Jason Piatt of Neighborhood Code Enforcement. 

Officer Kerry Haywood was promoted to sergeant. As noted on the Fort Wayne Police Department's Facebook page, Haywood has been on the force for 25 years and spent more than 20 years on the SWAT team.
