The Longview City Manager has upheld the termination of Officer Leigh Ann Snyder.
On January 3, officials from the city of Longview heard Snyder's
appeal of her termination from the Longview Police Department.
On December 11, 2011, Officer Snyder and a civilian passenger were
responding to a burglary alarm when they were hit, head on, by a drunk
driver. Snyder's injuries were the worst.
According to Longview city policy, employees must be let go if they miss 12 months of full-time work in a two year period.
According to city spokesman Shawn Hara, Snyder filed the appeal with
the city's human resources department last month. The city's appeal
committee, which consists of three city employees, heard from both
Snyder and the police department this morning. The committee made a recommendation to the city manager. The city manager had 10 business days to consider the recommendation
and then make a decision. The decision is final.
Hara said the appeals committee is a standing committee, and members
rotate every two years. The members are picked by the HR director. They
include one executive level employee, one supervisory level
employee, and one employee from anywhere from the city's organization.
