Former Auburn officer alleges ticket quota


AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — A former Auburn police officer says he was fired after complaining about a ticket quota, but city officials say there was never a quota.

Former officer Justin Hanners told WSFA-TV ( that officers were supposed to have 100 contacts a month, with those divided among warnings, tickets, arrests and field interviews. He produced a recording where the 100 contacts were outlined.

City Manager Charles Duggan said the message that there was a quota was wrongfully conveyed to at least one patrol shift, but the police chief made it clear there were no quotas.

He said the department hired a former investigator with the state attorney general's office to conduct an investigation, and he found no wrongdoing. The city manager said Hanners' allegations about his firing are false.
