Clayton County (CBS46)-20 members of the Clayton County Prison Commander have resigned or retired, and will be fired next week as a result of an internal investigation.
Sheriff Victor Hill said the staff “abuse of unauthorized overtime has totaled nearly $ 1 million in the three months of the fiscal year that began in July.”
Those who will be dismissed next week are on leave unpaid.
The investigation also found that “the supervisor responsible for managing and approving overtime was approving a luxurious amount of overtime for them without the request or permission of their boss. Violates the policy of the sheriff’s office. Supervisors get other supervisors. Put overtime on the Kronos payment system for them because the system does not allow them to enter their own overtime. For the same or lower rank. “
Sheriff Hill says half of the commanders have already been replaced.
Internal investigations will be forwarded to the Clayton County District Attorney’s Office for review.
