The Barrow Journal learned late Friday afternoon that Winder Mayor David Maynard had suspended most of the top brass of the Winder Police Department. Sources said officers escorted out of the department Chief Dennis Dorsey, Major Jim Fullington and Lt. Frank Farr, who is the uniform patrol commander.
They reportedly were suspended with pay until next week while the city investigates an allegation of lying or an alleged cover-up, sources said. The newspaper confirmed that Lt. Rob Curott is in charge of the department during their absences.
The mayor and other city officials on Friday refused to explain the allegation of wrongdoing. Said one source: “It’s a mess.”
