Walthourville Police Chief Bernie Quarterman will be back on duty after he serves a three-day suspension, according to a statement from City Clerk Melissa Jones, who is also the city’s human resources administrator.

Jones’ statement said Quarterman, who was suspended Nov. 11 by Mayor Daisy Pray, “admitted” responsibility for violating the city’s process for approving overtime.

The statement also said Quarterman accepted a three day suspension without pay and a letter of reprimand for “lack of control related to the continued training and certification of a police officer and the negligent handling of a matter of legal process,” the release said.

Quarterman’s actions potentially exposed the City of Walthourville to unwarranted financial responsibility, the statement read.
