Investigation begins after officers park cars at Municipal Center

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An internal affairs investigation is officially underway at the Jonesboro Police Department following Monday's message that was sent from patrol officers to Mayor Harold Perrin.

Off-duty officers parked their patrol units at the Jonesboro Municipal Center Monday morning to call attention to the officers' ongoing dispute over salary.

Tuesday afternoon, Jonesboro Police Chief Rick Elliot told Region 8 News that each officer who took part in the demonstration will be interviewed to determine if any department violations were made.

Chief Elliot also said no officers have been disciplined or reprimanded for their actions Monday.
