LONG BEACH, Miss. (WJTV) – Two Long Beach officers have been fired after the death of one officer’s three-year-old daughter.
Long Beach Police Chief Wayne McDowell recommended Officer Cassie Barker and Officer Clark Ladner be immediately terminated to the board of alderman Tuesday night according to CBS affiliate WLOX.
WLOX also reports Chief McDowell made the recommendation due to a “violation of department policies.”
The aldermen discussed the recommendation and voted to remove the officers when they returned to the public meeting.
Officer Barker and Officer Ladner have 10 days to appeal the vote.
