Two Chattanooga police officers subject of probe after event at FOP Lodge

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Chattanooga police are investigating a second officer after a complaint was made that a Fraternal Order of Police Lodge was used for a non-union related event January 31.

Officer Iran Meadows reserved the FOP lodge for the event. The department opened up a fact finding investigation into his actions. Investigators then later learned that a second officer, Jasin Holmes, may have been at the event.

“Officer Holmes' involvement on the night in question is being reviewed amid these allegations as part of the ongoing fact-finding investigation,” said Kyle Miller, public information officer for the department.

It's unclear what policies may have been violated.

“If a complaint is filed on an officer then the Chattanooga Police Department has a responsibility to review the complaint,” Miller said. “(Chattanooga police) initiated a fact-finding investigation to better understand the facts around the night in question.”

Holmes has not been relieved of duty because his actions do not meet the criteria in the department's policy.

“I do not believe the officer in question is in danger or presents a danger to himself or the general public,” said Chief Fred Fletcher in a released statement.
