Investigation: Jennings police department corruption

(KMOV)—A corruption investigation into the Jennings police department is almost complete.

A lieutenant and three officers are suspected of falsifying records to get tens of thousands of dollars in overtime pay not earned.
Jennings officers never held sobriety checkpoints, which the Federal Department of Transportation provided grants for.
Mayor Benjamin Sutphin stated that the city called in state and federal investigators after a review of grants raised some questions.
Police Chief Robert Orr says he was unaware of the falsified records because the overtime paperwork is submitted straight to highway safety.
If found guilty, the officers involved could face criminal charges.
The results of the investigation are expected in about a week.
