Officers disciplined for talking on the job

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - Two Fairfield Township Police officers have been disciplined after an internal investigation found they were doing more talking than patrolling.

A 2-month-long investigation found Sgt. Jamie Mays and Officer Neal Thibault were parking their vehicles at various locations throughout the township, and not patrolling.

Mays has accepted a demotion to the rank of sergeant for 12 months and will voluntarily forego any shift bid for 18 months. He must also use 157 hours of sick time and three hours of compensatory time that he accumulated. He was been on leave since May 4, 2010. Other hours above the 160 will be considered a paid leave of absence.

Thibault served a five day 'working' suspension earlier this month. He will not be eligible for a promotion to sergeant until next August and will be scheduled for additional training.
