Friday. December 30. 1977 England: J officer, no chief F.NT, I .AND. Ark. i AP) - The oh of England was left with '.•nly one police patrolman and no police chief Thursday night, after the city council passed a motion to suspend Police Chief Mike Coffman. f offnian said the city council, in a special meeting after an executive session Thursday, passed a motion on the recommendation of Mayor Frank Carr to suspend him "for insufficiency of duty for an indefinite period of time." Coffman said he was not presented with any written charges, and was not notified of the meeting. In a telephone interview, Carr confirmed late Thursday that Coffman had been suspended, but. he declined to state the reasons for the action. "We're not giving out any information. I can confirm that he was suspended, but that's all I can say," Carr said. Coffman said on Dec. 5 patrolman Willie Faulkner also was suspended, and two other officers resigned in protest at that time. Coffman said another patrolman, Russell Jackson, resigned Thursday night in protest of his suspension. Coffman said at full strength the England Police Department is comprised of five fulltime officers and a police chief. The population of England is about 3.100. Coffman said he believes he was suspended because of statements he made to a Little Rock television reporter after Faulkner's suspension. Coffman said he plans to appeal the suspension. "My name and reputation are at stake," he said. Coffman, 35, said he has been police chief in England for three years, and was a patrolman on the force for nine months before that. He had been employed by the North Little Rock Police Department for about one year previously, he said. Carolina girl maid of cotton MEMPHIS, Tenn..
