Public Scrutiny II

Less than a week ago, a city police official stated officers with suspended law enforcement certifications were working in administrative capacities only.

That appears not to have been the case.

A Lake City police officer whose law enforcement certification was suspended by the S.C. Criminal Justice Academy on June 29 issued a traffic ticket to a local motorist July 4, according to documents obtained Wednesday by the Morning News and WBTW News13.

Officer Maurice Ponteau had his state police certification suspended after the criminal justice academy reported that he and two other officers failed polygraph tests they were given in connection with an investigation into corruption and drug activity in the Lake City area.
