What is the legal status of a suspension for doing your job as an officer according to policy and not being allowed to tell your side of the story until after the charges and verdict have been rendered against you. Then given the the oportunity to explain your side and told nothing changes because a decision has already been made. If you are found innocent, you have already served a suspension for doing nothing wrong. My department has a policy of suspending members without investigating, meaning you are guilty and have to prove you are innocent. When politics come into play, you are always guilty no matter how innocent you are. Would realy like to explain in depth but on the forum where others from my department could see would be political suicide!
Any Help is appreaciated
Stay Safe !! Dennis
