Law enforcement just can’t get any love in Clayton County. After dispatching the disaster that was the midget former Clayton County Sheriff, it seemed that all was again right with this dysfunctional county.
Not so much, it appears.
Troubles continue to mount for former Clayton Police Chief Jeff Turner, who was placed on unpaid administrative leave Tuesday night while officials investigate whether he improperly used surveillance equipment.
But Turner’s problems don’t stop there.
The commission had compiled a list of a dozen allegations against the way Turner has run the department. Some of the allegations included insubordination, mishandling of sexual harassment complaints against officers, a rash of high-speed chases that resulted in civilian deaths, 138 unaccounted-for firearms and a chaotic evidence room.
