Joyriding Glendale police officers off city payroll

Three Glendale police officers who took a patrol car on a joyride to Las Vegas have left their jobs after a weeks-long misconduct investigation, a city spokesman said.

Tom Lorenz confirmed that Officers Patrick Hamblin, Fernando Salmeron and Mike Ullerich were no longer employees of the city, but declined to say for what cause.

Salmeron and Ullerich were officially “separated” from the city as of March 29, and Hamblin on April 1, Lorenz said.

“They are no longer employees,” Lorenz said. “They are no longer on the payroll for the city.”

I'm sure they were allowed to resign before any charges were brougt. It wouldn't suprise me if they ended up in another local agency... bringing their questionable if not illegal pracices with em!!!

So long as they joy ride over to my house when someone is breaking in
in the middle of the night to save me.

Wonder which department they are now on the "payroll" with? Oops, I forgot, Maywood PD doesn't exist anymore. Maybe Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Blythe?

That's it? No charges? No fines? Must be nice being a cop!

It's a win win for the cops cause they no longer have to while colecting a fat pension now they can really do Vegas wow what a corupt system we have created

Professionalism out the door,,,,,They must have scraped the bottom of the barrel to have hired tese three bozos,,,The chief should be reprimanded for not hiring officers with integraty,,,,Again that is what you have to work with ,when the standard are lowered,NO STRESS ACADEMY,,,,,,,,That to officer with no respect for THE BADGE or the community,,,,,,,,,,,
