Celina Police Chief Fired

CELINA -- The Celina police chief has been fired. Chief David Slusser has been on paid administrative leave for months as the city investigated various misconduct charges.

A letter, hand-delivered Thursday to Slusser, terminates his employment, which is effective at 5 p.m. Friday.


It also outlines the laundry list of what the city has found him guilty of doing, all allegations that he has never denied.

In one incident, the letter says he "...did not process the medication into evidence... lost the medication.. and have no idea where the medication is currently. "

Slusser then gave "...multiple stories regarding what (he) did with the medication."

The letter details other instances the Chief neglected to submit items from a criminal investigation into evidence.

Another case of wrongdoing involves a couple of laptops that he was supposed to wipe clean of police information. He reportedly didn't and the computers were given to council members.

The termination letter says on one laptop there were still "... pictures of a male juvenile in various stages of undress, including full view of genitalia."

Those are just a few of the examples of Chief's misconduct.

In the end, the city found his "actions and behavior constitute conduct unbecoming of an officer, insubordination, incompetency, neglect of duty, dishonesty, and failure of good behavior."

We reached out to Chief Slusser by email for any comment on his firing. We never heard back from him.
