Eric Hawkins the police chief, who is Black, plans to fire the officer who has been on the force for four years. But if Haupt argues his choice, the matter could go into binding arbitration.
“It could be a process as short as a month or so or it could go into several months,” said Hawkins. The police chief says there is no room on the police force for Haupt’s mindset.
“When we see it in police departments, law enforcement leaders have an obligation to stand up, call it what it is and take the appropriate action. And that’s what I did,” said Hawkins.
