I-Team: Officer Suspended

DENHAM SPRINGS, LA (WAFB) -

A Denham Springs police officer, who was suspended, is now back on the streets.

Officer Jared Kreamer was serving a 90-day without pay suspension for allegedly violating departmental policies.  But at an appeals hearing before the Denham Springs Fire and Police Civil Service Board, the board overturned that suspension and reinstated Officer Kreamer in a 3-2 vote.

Leaders at the Denham Springs Police Department initially wanted Officer Kreamer terminated, but decided on the 90-day suspension.  Officer Kreamer and his attorney, Charlie Dirks, claimed the police bill of rights was violated, which helped dismiss the case.

Investigators claimed the officer remained idle for hours at time at the IHOP and a bingo hall in Denham Springs and worked a second job without approval. 

The officer had been serving his suspension since April. 

Kreamer will also receive pay for the previously-unpaid suspension.
