And Another Spokane Cop Bites The Dust

Issue: Spokane sheriff fires jail supervisor: Sergeant lied about two affairs with workers, Knezovich says/Thomas Clouse, Spokesman-Review

More Info: Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich fired one of his jail supervisors Wednesday for allegedly lying about two separate affairs with female subordinates and issuing a false document to get one of his lovers a new job that would have paid her up to $75,000 a year. Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Delzer, a 26-year veteran employee, was fired following an internal investigation.

DFO: You have to give the Spokane police and sheriff’s department kudos for finally dealing with their dirty laundry. But I agree with Bill McCrory’s post yesterday. Not to be blowing our own horn, but I wonder if the shakedowns in the Spokane departments would be happening without the SR’s spotlight on their unseemly conduct.

Question: Are you encouraged by recent actions to root out bad eggs taken by the Spokane police and sheriff’s departments?
