Sandusky commissioners get feisty over police chief search

Anonymous • Aug 13, 2012 at 10:14 PM

City commissioner Pervis Brown Jr. defended himself against an accusation that he botched the search for a new police chief by refusing to consider any officers with present or past associations with the Perkins Township Police Department. 

“I am concerned over the numerous phone calls I received this (past) week regarding the exclusion of certain candidates from a geographical location,” commissioner Diedre Cole said during Monday's commission meeting, suggesting Brown snubbed the Perkins officers because the Perkins Police Department had investigated or arrested Brown’s son, Pervis Brown III, on several occasions.

Cole's assertion led to a heated 30-minute exchange involving Cole and commissioners Brown and Jeff Smith, who defended the decision to exclude the Perkins officers without explaining why they were excluded.
