JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Jonesboro police officers who protested their pay and benefits by parking their take-home patrol cars at City Hall will again be allowed to take the cars home.

Police Chief Rick Elliott told KAIT (https://bit.ly/1rA71K8 ) that he decided to reinstate the program after talking with each officer involved in the protest and will not require that a request be made in writing.

The protest involved officers parking their take-home patrol vehicles at City Hall on April 25 and leaving an unsigned letter to the mayor in his reserved space to outline complaints about salaries and benefits.

Two police sergeants were suspended without pay because of the protest. One participated by parking his car at City Hall and the other knew about it in advance, but did nothing to stop it.
