A cloud of sus­pi­cion hangs over the New Mia­mi Vil­lage Police Depart­ment after the dis­missal of Chief Harold Webb. May­or Jew­ell Hayes-Hens­ley ini­ti­at­ed the ter­mi­na­tion, cit­ing a series of con­cern­ing allegations.

The most promi­nent accu­sa­tion involved a strong mar­i­jua­na odor report­ed­ly ema­nat­ing from the chief’s office. This prompt­ed the may­or to request a drug test, which Chief Webb refused.

Fur­ther accu­sa­tions lev­eled against the chief included:

  • Neglect­ing his duty to respond to 911 calls
  • Mis­ap­pro­pri­at­ing funds by tak­ing hot dogs from a gas sta­tion (unau­tho­rized pur­chas­es beyond free beverages)
  • Fal­si­fy­ing work hours and col­lect­ing unearned paychecks

The New Mia­mi Vil­lage Coun­cil unan­i­mous­ly vot­ed to remove Chief Webb from his posi­tion after only a year of service. 

May­or Hayes-Hens­ley empha­sized her com­mit­ment to fos­ter­ing a “safe, clean, and thriv­ing” com­mu­ni­ty. She out­lined plans to enhance the police depart­men­t’s effec­tive­ness and tack­le local crime and hous­ing concerns.
