Officer who hasn’t worked since March asked for leave after injury claim

Seymour Police Chief Bill Abbott has dropped his charges against an officer who hasn’t shown up to work since March 9.

Abbott said originally he filed chief’s charges on April 24 against officer Jerry Polly, 39, stating Polly had been absent from work without leave time and had abused the city’s sick-leave policy.

Chief’s charges are those concerning alleged violation of rules and procedures — not criminal charges — that he can take to the board of public works for potential disciplinary action, Abbott said.
