Charge 2: Violation of Greenwood Police Department Policy 422, “Mobile Data Center Use”, specifically section 422.4 “Restricted Access and Use”.


Charge 3: Violation of Greenwood Police Department Policy 320, “Standards of Conduct”, specifically section 320.5.9 (h) Use of obscene, indecent, profane or derogatory language while on-duty or in uniform and section 320.5.9 (p) Any other on- or off-duty conduct which any member knows or reasonably should know is unbecoming a member of this agency, is contrary to good order, efficiency or morale, or tends to reflect unfavorably upon this agency or its members.


Chief James Ison says that if the suspended officers are found guilty, he wants them fired.
