Worthing Police Chief Fired

WORTHING, S.D. (AP) – Worthing city commissioners are searching for a new police chief after firing Roger Knutson from the post.

Commissioners alleged “repeated unprofessional conduct” during the Tuesday night vote. City Manager Jeff Tanner declined to elaborate to The Associated Press on Wednesday, saying he didn’t want to comment on a personnel matter.

Kuntson worked for 24 years in law enforcement. He tells the Argus Leader that he has submitted an appeal in writing. He says that he’d had no trouble in his position until Tanner was hired three years ago.

Tanner declined to respond to that allegation and said the city is shifting its focus to finding a new police chief as soon as possible.
