The city of California announced Wednesday it has terminated the employment of two California Police Department officers, effective Jan. 5.
The Board of Aldermen elected to terminate the employment of the two probationary employees during a closed session of Monday's monthly board meeting. The motion passed by a 5-1 vote, with alderwoman Resa Dudley as the lone dissenting board member.
The city also announced that the board had voted to retain the services of a consultant to conduct a comprehensive review and inquiry into the operations of the CPD. The review will commence immediately.
