Tension rises over non-payment of police in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD, Ala. (WIAT) — The Fraternal Order of Police addressed the city council and the mayor on behalf of police officers in Fairfield on Monday night.

Some of the officers have asked permission to be transferred to other departments in Jefferson County, but those requests were denied based on city policy.

Mayor Kenneth Coachman says he denied transfers because he doesn’t want officers using Fairfield as a training ground, only to take their experience somewhere else.
