SHREVEPORT, La – Five Shreveport police officers are off the beat after disciplinary action this week.

Shreveport Police Chief Alan Crump fired Andrew Wilson, over alleged policy violations.

This is the second time Wilson has been fired. He was terminated in 2014 after his arrest on an obstruction of justice charge. The charge stemmed from an investigation into allegations that Wilson had an inappropriate relationship with a student while he was a school resource officer at a Shreveport high school, according to court documents.

Police ultimately charged Wilson with obstruction of justice, alleging he destroyed evidence in his phone during the investigation.

The case was dismissed earlier this year and Wilson was reinstated — but in October Crump suspended him as the department investigated unspecified policy violations.

Wilson first joined the department in 2004.

Crump also has fired another officer — James Greene — accused of wrongdoing on the job.

In 2015, Greene was charged with abuse of office after a woman accused him of raping her in his office at the Shreveport Police Department. A jury acquitted him earlier this year and he was reinstated on the police force.

In October, Crump put Greene on paid leave again during an investigation of unspecified policy violations.

This week, Crump also fired Officer Sean Channell after an investigation into unspecified policy violations. Channell joined the department in 2009.

Crump also put Officer Joshua Dowell on paid leave after Dowell was arrested on a contempt of court charge this afternoon. Dowell joined the department in 2011.

Officer Jemarlun Walker also has been put on leave during an investigation of unspecified policy violations”

Seriously, I have only one question:

Who the hell is hiring these people?
