It was back in September when former HPD Sgt. Ryan Chandler tried to get his job back and now we have learned he won’t.
Chandler, who was fired by HPD Chief Charles McClelland last year, appealed his termination with the city’s Human Resource Department.
Our sources say the civil service review board has decided to stand behind the Chief’s decision to terminate the former homicide investigator.
Chandler was accused of intentionally not following through on his caseload (2008 – 2012 / 21 cases) as a homicide investigator.
During an April 2014 press conference Chandler was described as one of the worst cops at HPD by McClelland.
“He was lazy, he was a liar, he was not forthright with his supervisors, he misled his other co-workers,” said Chief McClelland.
The veteran investigator was represented by an attorney from the Houston Police Officers’ Union at his arbitration hearing last September.
That attorney says his client is aware of the decision but declined to comment.
