Anonymous Source Releases Documents on Sullivan City Police Officer
SULLIVAN CITY — NewsCenter 23 received information, through the mail, from an anonymous source about a Sullivan City police officer who resigned after failing a drug test and then being rehired and promoted within the department. The documents we received appear to be copies of the original police reports reflecting the officer's failed drug test and to date no one has denied or challenged the authenticity of the documents. The police department requested that NewsCenter 23 turn over the documents to aid their efforts to identify and prosecute the source of the leak. Consistent with established journalistic standards, regarding protection of sources, NewsCenter 23 and our parent company, Communications Corporation of America, have declined to voluntarily surrender our documents.
