This demotion is effective today. This double-demotion is based on Sergeant Sin violating Civil Service Commission Rule 10.03, which sets forth the grounds for disciplinary suspensions of employees in the classified service, and states: No employee of the classified service of the City of Austin shall engage in, or be involved in, any of the following acts or conduct, and the same shall constitute cause for suspension of an employee from the classified service of the City: L.

It~was later reported a female was trying to run away from her husband, who was driving a vehicle, and subsequently hit her with that vehicle. Prior to APD Officers arriving at the initial scene, the husband fled into a wooded area, and a coordinated search ensued. Shortly after, the husband was found in the wooded area by officers hiding in a brushy area. Both officers discharged their firearms, fatally wounding the husband. During this incident, Sergeant Sin admits that he failed to perfoi-m his duties in a satisfactory manner. By these actions, Sergeant Sin violated Rule 10.03(L) of the Civil Service Rules by violating the following rules and regulations of the Austin Police Department: > Austin Police Department Policy 900.4.: Requirements of Duty 900.4 REQUIREMENTS OF DUTY Employee conduct will always be consistent with the Departments values, vision, mission, and any supervisors instructions. (b) Employees will not exhibit cowardice or shirk their duty in case of danger. (g) Employees will remain alert and observant while on-duty and devote their time and attention to the business of the Department. Any exceptions require supervisor approval. **For clarification purposes, I am sustaining subpart (b) for Sergeant Sin shirking his duties in the case of danger, not for exhibiting cowardice in the case of danger. > Austin Police Department Policy 900.4.3: Neglect of Duty 900.4.3 NEGLECT OF DUTY Employees will satisfactorily perform their duties.
