Caldwell Police Chief Loses Job

Brian Langley, Caldwell's police chief since the early 1990's, is being removed from that post.

Caldwell Mayor Lowell Anderson confirmed to WTAP News today that Langley, who was arrested last month for driving while intoxicated in Guernsey County, will be terminated as of the close of business Friday.

Anderson added, however, that under local and Ohio law, Langley will have 10 days to appeal the mayor's decision to the Village Council.

Langley was placed on medical leave in December, although village leaders and council members have declined to say why.

Anderson said he told Langley of his decision during a meeting with the police chief Thursday morning. The mayor said Langley chose during that meeting not to resign.

Langley faces trial on the OVI charge in Cambridge Municipal Court later this year.

    I don't see what the problem is here. Langley was on leave from his job when this happened. There have been law officers do things like this and worse before and didn't lose their jobs. Maybe the new Mayor has some one else that he wants to have that job.

    LOL @ Tom. Sad thing is, Tom, the way our council behaves and evades the law is criminal in and of itself. Eventually, they'll be under their own investigations where they won't be able to pull the wool quite so easily.
