After Two Tries, Police Officer is Really Fired

FLINT TOWNSHIP, MI – A Flint Township police officer has been fired again following a vote by board members earlier this week.

The 5-to-0 vote -- with Trustee George Menoutes and Treasurer Sandra Wright absent -- came after a closed session and upon recommendations from Police Chief George Sippert and labor attorney Steve Shultz.

Township Supervisor Karyn Miller confirmed Officer Matthew Needham had also been terminated in November 2011 for violating four department rules and regulations, but she declined to give details on what specific incidents led to each vote.
