An EPD officer has been on unpaid suspension for past two weeks after an internal investigation into a recent incident.
In his eight years with the Evansville Police Department, Officer Hicks earned Officer of the Month honors seven times. He was selected by his peers as the Field Training Officer of the Year in March 2012. Then in December of that same year, Officer Hicks was named 2012 Officer of the Year. Officials say Hicks was instrumental in cracking open a local drug case.
Officer Hicks began his unpaid suspension on October 1. He will be placed on paid suspension starting October 22 and will appeal Chief Bolin's recommendation for dismissal at the merit board meeting on November 4.
