North Dakota town says police chief's firing due to performance, inappropriateness
LINCOLN, N.D. — Lincoln’s police chief was fired for “several policy violations and poor performance issues,” including not fulfilling patrol duties and acting inappropriately toward a city employee, the city alleges in his termination letter.
Minutes from city council meetings also show Greg Leveling requested additional compensation after his employment in this city on the southeastern edge of Bismarck.
The Lincoln City Council on Thursday, Sept. 12, ratified a decision to fire Leveling. The council met in executive session, then voted unanimously in open session to terminate Leveling’s employment.
Lincoln Mayor Gerarld Wise declined comment Friday. Hagel did not immediately respond to phone and email messages left by the Bismarck Tribune.
Attempts to reach Leveling and his attorney for comment on Thursday and Friday were unsuccessful.
The termination letter cites Leveling’s “failure to perform required job duties of an active duty patrol officer alongside your duties as the administrative officer” of the police department. The letter also cited alleged inappropriate actions from a July 24 meeting with a city public works employee. The letter provided no details.
