Perkins Twp. won't release alleged drunken officer report

Emil Whitis • Dec 7, 2012 at 2:19 PM

Following a marathon closed-door meeting Thursday, township authorities would not release facts surrounding Officer Kate Barker's alleged drunkenness as she was about to start work on Thanksgiving Day.     

At least two other officers are also the target of an internal investigation into the matter, but Perkins police Chief Ken Klamar has refused to identify them or explain their role in the incident.   

Township officials held a five-hour, closed-door meeting Thursday to discuss possible discipline for the officers involved, but they ultimately emerged without announcing any decisions.  

It's been a full two weeks since the incident involving Barker, and Klamar and township trustees are still refusing to provide answers.
