City Board of Estimates expected to OK $75,000 payment to officer fired in 2001

December 15, 2004|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A city police officer who was accused of sleeping on the job is expected to receive $75,000 in back pay from the city, which fired him more than two years ago but later rehired him under court order.

Police officials said they found officer Daniel Redd asleep about 11 a.m. Oct. 2, 2001, at the reservoir at Druid Hill Park, where he was supposed to be on anti-terrorist duty. Redd, who joined the force in 1994, was fired in June 2002 over the incident.

Redd sued over his termination. In July, Baltimore Circuit Judge Robert I.H. Hammerman ordered him reinstated and reimbursed for lost wages.

The city's Board of Estimates is expected to approve the $75,000 in back pay at a meeting today.
