Crime-stat revelation: 'Lost property' reports mysteriously soar

Here is yet another indication that the city's falling crime rate may be crime fiction: The number of lost-property reports filed with police jumped by 44 percent from 1997 to 2004, according to a document the NYPD released to the Voice in response to a freedom-of-information request. Nearly half of that increase occurred in the last two years of that period. And 2005 was on pace, as of November 1, to beat out the previous year.

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.
