Payette police confirm interna
An internal affairs investigation regarding ethics and a former employee of the Payette Police Department has been underway for about two months, Payette Police Chief Mark Clark confirmed Monday.

Specific details of the investigation are not being disclosed by law enforcement officials because it has been described as a personnel matter, which does not involve criminal charges.

However, Clark said it is business as usual at PPD and the department is fully cooperating with an investigation coordinated by the Idaho Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST).

Troy council fires its police

TROY - The Troy City Council voted to terminate the employment of three of its police officers for “failure to follow the rules, or to conform their conduct to the council’s wishes,” according to a faxed statement with a city of Troy letterhead on it.

According to the press release, the action was taken at a public meeting of the Troy City Council on Monday. The action came after a more than two-month evaluation of the Troy Police Department by the council, according to the statement.

The firing leaves the city without a police force, although the Bell County Sheriff’s Department will send patrols to the city until new department personnel are hired.

On Aug. 28, the council fired Police Chief David Seward.

The officers fired Monday were Adam Davis, Louie Minor Jr. and Jack Comeaux, the release said.

The release said Comeaux was fired for insubordination, displays of disrespect toward superiors, unauthorized work schedule and conduct undermining department integrity.

Minor and Davis were fired for “lack of confidence,” the release said.

Seward was placed on probation following a July 11 meeting of the council but was placed on administrative leave of absence by Mayor Sammy Warren a few days after that meeting.

Warren said prior to the motion to discharge Seward that the issues surrounding his suspension and firing had to do with poor administrative job performance, financial issues and management of the police department in general.
