THE KNOXVILLE POLICE OFFICER WHO BODY-SLAMMED A MAN who was legally carrying a firearm has been disciplined.
The official action(s) taken are:
- A written reprimand for the officer, “which reprimand carries with it certain inter-departmental consequences beyond just a notation in their personnel file.”
- Remedial training in TN Handgun Carry Permit law, and in dealing with the public.
- All KPD officers will be undergoing refresher training on Tennessee Handgun Carry Permit law during the next in-service training session.
- An apology from the Chief of Police, Sterling Owen.
This seems to have been well-handled.
