Two Lakeland Officers Want Their Jobs Back

LAKELAND, Fla. – Two Lakeland police officers fired amid a department sex scandal have filed grievances and are fighting to get their jobs back.

David Woolverton and Rusty Longaberger, both former sergeants, do not agree with Chief Lisa Womack’s decision to fire them.

In their grievances filed with LPD, both Woolverton and Longaberger state they do not believe there was just cause to support their firings.

Womack reviewed the grievances Tuesday, but declined to comment to media. She has until August 16 to render her decision.

If the chief denies the grievances, then Woolverton and Longaberger will appeal to the City Manager Doug Thomas.
