Acquitted Officer Files for Reinstatement
DETROIT — A police officer who was recently acquitted of charges that he was paid as a cop while working as a hospital security guard is seeking reinstatement and back pay.
Jerome Collins was accused of reporting he was on the clock as a Detroit police officer while he was working as a security guard at St John Riverview Hospital from 2007 to 2009, The Detroit News reports. Collins’ attorney Gerald Evelyn said police records failed to properly track the irregular shifts worked by Collins.
Back pay will likely amount to more than Collins was accused of taking.
