NOPD Sergeant Dismissed from Duty; Multiple Departmental Violations Sustained

john-hunter-02-692×384(from the New Orleans Police Department) – A New Orleans Police sergeant was dismissed from duty yesterday after a lengthy, undercover Public Integrity Bureau (PIB) investigation revealed he had committed payroll fraud, as well as violated other departmental policies.

John Hunter joined the NOPD 15 years ago.  He was most recently assigned to the Eighth District.

In an administrative hearing held by Deputy Superintendent Kirk Bouyelas, it was determined that Hunter violated 4 counts of the Performance of Duty policy by not devoting entire time to duty, 3 counts of ceasing to perform before the end of his period of duty, 3 counts of leaving the city while on duty and four counts of Public Payroll Fraud.  After a review of information collected during the PIB investigation as well as testimony provided at yesterday’s hearing, Chief Bouyelas determined that the violations were sustained.  The sustained payroll fraud counts carry the sanction of dismissal from the department.
