Dothan Policeman Fired

The City of Dothan has terminated Police Captain John Collier just before his planned retirement.

Collier who's been with the police department since 1978, was the subject of an internal investigation.

Officials with the City of Dothan could not comment further than to confirm the investigation and Collier's termination.

Captain Collier cooperated with an investigation by the city's personnel board into allegations against the department and Police Chief John White.

Chief White said Collier's internal investigation was in no way related to the personnel board controversy.
