Mayor Testruth today relieved both Chief Ellison and Asst. Chief Bick from their command positions today after learning from ILEA the neither have acheived the necessary certification to serve as police officers in Indiana.
Remarkably, this is exactly what we brough to the Board of Public Safety this Saturday past and dismissed as unimportant. Seasoned professionals and Board member walked out in protest after Testruth dismissed their concerns. Ellison admited the he had authorized a marked vehicle, badge, radio and police powers for Bick. He additionally confirmed that Bick had been using these powers to stop, detain and arrest unwary citizens.
