Bonifay Law Enforcement Officials Reinstated

One Northwest Florida law enforcement agency remains embroiled in an on-going controversy.

Long-time Bonifay Policeman Steven Lee is suspended for reportedly making traffic stops outside his department's jurisdiction.

For nearly a week, Chief Ronnie Bennett and Assistant Chief, Joe Sallas, were suspended by Mayor Fred Howell, but then reinstated by the city council to their jobs over the issue of falsified training records.

Mayor Howell believes the department is in a sad state of affairs.

During its scheduled meeting next Monday night, the Bonifay City Council is expected to discuss the police department.
