Officer loses gun in training :lol:
An Albany Police Officer was a recruit in training when she lost her handgun.
ALBANY â€" An Albany police officer has been reprimanded after she said she lost her department-issued handgun, officials said.
According to police reports, investigators first questioned Officer Shunell Borders after she failed to turn in her .40- caliber, Smith and Wesson handgun for scheduled repair on March 9.
Reports show that Borders initially told investigator Greg Elder her weapon may have been stolen, but after questioning she admitted that she had lost it.
â€œI asked her what the worst outcome of her losing her gun could be, and she stated â€˜losing my job,â€™â€ Elder wrote in a report. â€œI then advised her that she had damaged our working relationship by being deceitful.â€
Borders, who was an APD recruit working through the police academy at the time, first told Elder that her gun may have been stolen by people who had been working at the police compound where her car had been parked.
The gun, which Borders said she kept in a shoebox in the trunk of the car so that her two young children couldnâ€™t get to it, was registered into the Georgia Crime Information Computer and has yet to turn up.
According to APD spokesman Lt. Kenn Singleton, Borders was reprimanded and forced to reimburse the city for the cost of the gun.
Disciplinary documents show that she was issued a written reprimand for violating APD Standard Operating Procedure A-230, Section A, Improper Conduct or careless handling or unauthorized abuse of equipment resulting in loss or damage.
According to the document, her corrective measure is â€œnever to allow it to happen again,â€ and she is warned that if there are further violations it will result in more severe discipline.
That form was signed by Borders, Capt. Ernest Williams and APD Chief James Younger.
