Burk Commissioners To Discuss Police Chief

The Burkburnett Police Chief's job could be on the line. Monday city leaders posted their agenda for a special executive session to be held on Thursday night. The only item on the agenda is for City Commissioners to quote deliberate the appointment, evaluation, reassignment, duties, discipline, or dismissal of a public officer or employee. They list that employee as being the Police Chief. Thursday's meeting comes on the heels of multiple negative actions involving the Burk Police Department.

A Federal Civil Lawsuit involving police brutality was filed in August against the City of Burk, the P.D. and several current and former officers. One of the plaintiffs in the case just settled this month for $60,000.

Then on November 3rd former Burk Police Lieutenant Brad Boyd pleaded guilty to Tampering with a Governmental Record while working for the department. As part of his plea, Boyd will give up his Peace Officer license for three years and pay a $500 fine.

Then just last week a second former officer was indicted on felony charges of Evidence Tampering. John Allen Klenk is accused of intentionally or knowingly altering or destroying a rifle in March of 2008.

After all this City Commissioners will discuss the Police Chief's position at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Newschannel 6 will be there. For complete coverage on these events click on the links provided.
