The Insite and Fox 26 news have learned four houston police officers have been relieved of duty and recommended for termination for an alleged ticket writing scheme that’s costing you the taxpayer.
Sources say these officers have been the target of an internal investigation for a year and half.
The cops, who include a Sargent and Officer Matt Davis, are accused of an orchestrated ticket writing scheme.
The officers were investigated by internal affairs and recommended for termination by a civilian group for allegedly signing on to multiple tickets to eventually claim thousands of dollars in overtime from the Houston Police Department.
Officer Davis is of particular note because he’s known as one of the biggest ticket writers at HPD.
Published reports show Davis has actually written thousands of tickets alone in a month’s time.
The ultimate decision on the future of the veteran officers will be left up to HPD chief Charles McClelland.
This is a story fox 26 first broke late last year.
Once again the four officers have been relieved of duty and we’re hoping to get a response from the department and the union.
