Police departments are finally wising up to the idiocy of keeping derelict officers employed. Unfortunately, she, like many before her, will turn up employed at some other PD, because there is no system for preventing such hiring abuse. Its up to citizens to research her possible employment elsewhere and object to it. A person with this serious of a substance abuse problem can NEVER be in law enforcement.
