COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Two Columbus police officers have resigned rather than face disciplinary action.

The City Council accepted resignations from Patrolmen Michael Harlow and Robert Walker at their meeting Tuesday night.

Walker faced being suspended or fired for several infractions while Harlow faced punishment over the validity of some doctor’s excuses for absences.

Walker, a five-year veteran of the department, has been suspended previously, including as part of the Vicksburg Four who were punished for their behavior at the Vicksburg National Military Park during a conference.

Harlow, who has been on the force two years, was punished previously over absences. He also was involved in a shooting 19 months ago but was cleared of any wrong in the case.

    Is PRIVACY not a factor in the CPD anymore? Instead of releasing information of the officers resigning, the department needs to be working on solving cases. Furthermore, who actually knows if they were going to get suspended or fired? Since McQueen has been named chief…more officers have left the department. These issues are discussed privately in a closed session with the councilmen. So maybe we as citizens should get an understanding of why they are discussing these issues with the news media. These officers have families and rather than take any crap from the department they decide to move on with their lives and find STRESS FREE jobs. So is this news worthy? NOT AT ALL…
