We stand by Monitor Hassan Aden that officer Mason Swires should remain terminated from the force and the city administration should pursue all avenues possible in ensuring that happens.
Following an investigation, Director Howard found the officer lied to investigators about fleeing the scene of an accident he was involved in with an RTA bus and failed to report the crash to a supervisor.
Officer integrity is essential to Constitutional policing and key to building trust in the community. We support the Monitor’s statement that officers who are found to be dishonest are held accountable.
