who was an officer for 12 years before she left in late July.
D. where he is running for Eddy County sheriff Lies said he still stands by his statementLies said that on the morning of March 11 Ternes showed up in the patrol area — the first time he’d seen him there — and informed officers about Skuza’s deathAccording to Lies Ternes told the group his deputy chiefs had recommended Skuza be fired and that he had emailed that information to Skuza the night before“They don’t really think about what the person is going through” Lies said “It’s beyond explanation how you could treat people like that”Lies said Ternes told them Skuza had called him that night and was quite upsetFraternal Order of Police President Benjamin said he understands Skuza tried to resign but that Ternes wouldn’t accept the resignationNot so said TernesHe said he told Skuza he could retire at any time but that he thought that would be premature“To suggest that he came in and said ‘Hey chief I want to resign from the department’ and for me to say ‘No you can’t’ that’s not true” Ternes saidLies said the “Skuza situation” was the final straw for him“If they had professional managers come in and critique the way this situation was handled they’d find it appalling” Lies saidExit interviewsAccording to Fargo Police Department records eight officers have resigned so far this year not including those who retiredThat compares with six resignations last year 10 resignations in 2012 one in 2011 and seven in 2010Of the officers resigning or retiring in 2014 who voluntarily filled out exit interviews three were highly critical of the departmentFive officers gave mostly positive reviews with a few suggestionsOfficer Tom Bernier who left in April after a little more than a year of employment said “The people working in the department are top notch”However he suggested the workload for patrol officers should be lightenedSgt Ryan Dorrheim left for a different job in May after 12 years with the departmentThough Dorrheim said he viewed his employment as “very positive” he wondered if the city could help certain employees manage their own stress and happiness betterLt Gene Anderson who retired in April after 27 years on the job said “While we may have some individuals who are unhappy with their employment I believe their number is few and their complaints are minimal at best”The comments made by Lies on his exit interview form didn’t go beyond the criticism over Skuza’s deathHowever Nelson and Jessica Johnson who left the department in late April for health reasons listed additional factors for their unhappiness“I’m sad to leave the best police officers and sergeants this city has but not sad to leave the environment we are stuck in” Nelson saidJohnson expressed frustration with an on-the-job injury she sustained in 2013 and what she said was a lack of support afterward from the department specifically Ternes“The chief is not a leader” said Johnson on her exit interview form“He shows zero interest in his employees”Ternes again says that comes from a person who is disgruntled“If you delve into personnel files and internal affairs files you will find an incredible amount of consistency and parallel between a scathing exit survey and a problematic employee” Ternes saidInternal affairs records show Johnson received multiple letters of reprimand and a three-day suspension because of work performance issues over the course of her careerNelson received letters of reprimand and a two-day suspension without pay because of conduct unbecoming of an officerShe declined an interview request for this storyLies was disciplined six times over his career including a two-day suspension without pay over a claim he mishandled evidence and a nine-day suspension without pay in relation to him being arrested for DUILies admits he made some mistakes but said for Ternes to label him as disgruntled is wrong“I’m not” Lies said “I loved my time in Fargo“That’s the chief covering his tracks” he said “He likes to have his thumb on everybody and that’s why he disciplines them”He said matters got worse for him under Ternes and he knew he couldn’t stay any longerTernes sees the situation much differently“He (Lies) was somebody who did both himself and the department a favor by leaving” the chief saidNo ‘systemic cancer’Mike Benton 62 retired from the police department in June and said it’s the best job he’s ever hadHe was hired at age 53 after a 15-year career as a biology professor and says being a cop was “the time of my life” despite nagging back injuries and burnout on some of the mundane callsBenton is proud of the numbers of arrests he made warrants he closed and citations he handed outThey were benchmarks he thought should earn him new or additional assignments but they never did In retrospect he said because he should have focused a little more on building relationships in the communityBenton said his beef over lack of advancement was with only a few people at supervisory levels — and while he in no way can speak for others he doesn’t see systemwide toxicity“If I thought there was some systemic cancer in the department that just overshadowed everything else I would have left a long time ago” he said and he doesn’t feel the current vacancies are the result of “some flood of cops bolting for the door”Ternes said he’s working hard to fill the vacancies and has three conditional job offers out and other candidates being interviewedWhile being shorthanded presents a challenge “it’s nothing we haven’t dealt with before” Ternes saidBrendon Manuel Dos Santos 23 was acquitted of his noisy party charge a Class B misdemeanor after about 20 minutes of jury deliberation Tuesday in a one-day trial over a charge typically resolved by paying a fine in municipal courtDos Santos’ attorney Ted Sandberg said his client was at a party that was in violation of Grand Forks noise ordinances on April 30 in the first block of North Third Street"There’s no question a noisy party was taking place" Sandberg saidA neighbor called Grand Forks Police that night after being disturbed by noise levels at the apartment below Sandberg said officers asked all attendees for their IDs"There’s no law that requires them to do that You don’t have to give up your ID on demand like that" Sandberg saidWhen Dos Santos refused to give up his ID he was handcuffed and written a noisy party citation Sandberg said He said Dos Santos was the only person cited besides the apartment resident"The jury did not like that" Sandberg saidSandberg said he also represented the man who lived at the residence who pleaded guilty to his noisy party charge and paid his ticketAssistant city prosecutor Sarah Gereszek said noisy party charges do occasionally go to trial but this has been her first this year She said the city believes Dos Santos was guilty of his charge"The city maintains that there was a noisy party and he was in violation of the ordinance" Gereszek saidIt can be hard to make district court jurors understand the impact noise violations have on residents in more densely populated areas of the city Gereszek said In this case she said the city called the two responding police officers to testify at trial but lost its local witness because the person had moved awayShe said at trial the defense focused on aspects outside of the noise violation in question"I think there was some confusion as to what the issues were" she saidThe defense agreed the party was loud but said the way Dos Santos was cited was wrong"You have to take that to a jury because that’s a situation where the citizens then step in and say ‘We can correct this’ " Sandberg said Brigadier General Olufemi Akinjobi will see them rising above contemporary security challenges confronting the nation an analyst at
