It was Tuesday when some North Forest Independent School District police officers said they were forced to patrol in the cold after their interim police chief ordered them to remove their jackets while on duty.
Those allegations came after the officers say they didn’t have on their department designed patches for their jackets.
Chief Larry Patrick insists the Insite received only half the story. Here’s the response from NFISD:
Note: The officers who contacted the Insite are drafting a response to the chief’s statement. They say Tuesday’s blog post was accurate and they deny the claims being made by Chief Patrick. They also deny having department issued jackets. I’ve placed an open records request from North Forest requesting that information.
The Insite will keep you updated!
