Assistant City Manager Jill Jordan said in a letter to Sgt. Walter Clifton that she had overturned his five-day suspension, which was imposed by Police Chief David Kunkle, in favor of “documented counseling” sessions, the Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday.
“My decision in this matter is non-appealable,” she wrote.
Sgt. Clifton was suspended after telling investigators that he instructed officers years ago to make up occupations on citations issued for homeless people. He said he wanted to conceal the fact that they were homeless because he thought the courts would not issue arrest warrants for unpaid citations issued to the homeless.
