Walt "Hondo" Hunter and Jarris Varnrobinson
Two former detectives fired from the Florence Police Department received good news from the officials at the Arizona Peace Officers Standards and Training.
AZ POST, the body that certifies police officers to carry a badge and a gun, informed both police officers in February that the state board is not taking any punitive action against their police certification and "the matter is closed."
Walt "Hondo" Hunter and Jarris Varnrobinson have been fighting to clear their name since being terminated in December 2012. They were fired, in part, for blowing the whistle on a lieutenant they believed was compromising criminal investigations by returning evidence in those cases.
