ST. CHARLES, Mo. (KMOV) – The City of St. Charles police officers notified the city that they have no confidence in their police chief.
St. Charles Mayor Sally Faith tells News 4 she is aware of the no-confidence vote and that it is under review, but says there has been no change to the leadership for the department at this time.
The St. Charles Police Officers Association took the no-confidence vote in regards to Chief Dennis Corley, Major Donovan Kenton and Captain Paul West after meeting one-on-one with human resources to outline around 70 complaints against them.
Many complaints were made in regards to poor leadership that officers say has put them in danger. The officers also allege that the chief promotes his friends without going through the proper process.
Corley has been with the St. Charles Police Department for more than 20 years and has been the police chief since 2007.
A council member tells News 4 that a decision on the matter will come sometime soon.
