City Police Sgt. Jim Mauro will find out his fate April 5th. An adjudicator has found Mauro guilty of discreditable conduct following a Police Services Act hearing. Deputy Police Chief Andy Hay says they are asking that Mauro be permanently demoted to the rank of constable instead of an outright dismissal. Evidence at the hearing showed that Mauro presented letter at a 2009 arbitration proceeding and falsely claimed it was from then Police Association President, Keith Hobbs. Meantime the Mauro family says the proceedings were an "incredible" waste of taxpayers dollars.
Deputy Chief Hay discusses the fact Sgt. Mauro has been suspended with pay for the two years Mauro's case has been outstanding.
