How can the Payson police be further discredited than they already are? The whole department is suspect in regard to handling of evidence and making false statements and misrepresenting the details of cases. Now the chief is awarded for actions taken in regard to blotched prosecutions? Is the city trying to cover for the ineptness of its employees? The past two years is a series of blunders and mistakes from the clerks up to the HR choices in hiring. Do you award failure in public service in Payson?

Officer ‘discredits’ police department — for second time
After surviving an embarrassing sexting scandal involving a drug informant last year, Payson Police Officer Josh LaManna, 34, lost his job after admitting that while on duty he sent lewd text messages to two other women and had sex with one after entering her home without permission. LaManna, 34, resigned late last month in lieu of termination after Police Chief Don Engler discovered LaManna was sending and receiving sexually explicit pictures with two other women.
