High Springs Police Chief Cleared of Any Wrongdoing
For 2 law enforcement executives in Alachua County, it seems to have gotten personal. High Springs Police Chief Jim Troiano says a state investigation could have been avoided. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigated whether the High Springs Police Department used grant money to improperly pay overtime to officers. The report found no criminal misconduct had occurred. However, Chief Troiano didn't shy away from how he feels about the investigation claiming Darnell could have just approached him about the situation.
"To me, this is vengeful. This is unprofessional and this was spending thousands of tax payer's dollars to go on a witch hunt," said Chief Troiano.
Sheriff Darnell, out of town on business, told TV20 by phone she merely followed procedure when a citizen made an allegation about Troiano's use of grants. Darnell said grant officials contacted FDLE. To see more on this report, watch the video to your right.
