OFFICER DEMOTION: Commission Fails To Rule

Officer KERVIN VEASLEY

The Des Moines Civil Service Commission still hasn’t ruled on an appeal made by a demoted police officer.

Kervin Veasley was demoted after officials learned he was refereeing youth basketball games while his was on injury leave for severe headaches.

Veasley says the headaches keep him from police work but don’t affect his part-time job as a referee.

His appeal was heard in February.

The Civil Service Commission failed again to reach a majority decision on the case this week. They will consider the appeal again at a meeting later this year.

Veasley remains on the force. He is being paid accrued leave and vacation time.

    Disability claims are the largest scams perpetrated by law enforcement yet go unreported for the most part. Its an epidemic in this country.
