The current airport police presence includes 5 retired PPD officers who work PART-TIME to supplement the airport operations.
Due to alleged issues with the Florida Retirement System, all of which local attorney Ed Fleming believe could be worked out, tricky Dick Barker used the proverbial City Coconut telegraph to let the officers know they would be terminated on September 24.
My understanding is:
- Olson told Barker
- Barker emailed Lyter
- Lyter emailed the Captain of the Uniform Patrol Division
- who emailed the officers a memo informing them of their termination.
