Waldo Police Chief Responds to Citizens' Complaints
Police officers in one North Central Florida city say...they're just doing their job.
But some residents say...they're being harassed.
Police patrolling a neighborhood in Waldo known for drug activity has some residents upset...and others thankful.
Some residents say one police officer has been patrolling their neighborhood so much, he's harassing them.
They took their concerns to a Waldo city council meeting.
But the police chief says he investigated that officer...and he hasn't done anything wrong.
"There was no policy violation. He lawfully stopped the individual," Chief Mike Szabo, Waldo Police Department, said.
Chief Szabo asked FDLE to conduct its own investigation into the resident's complaints.
But an official with FDLE said this isn't something the agency investigates.
