(Le Mars) — The Le Mars Civil Service Commission decided on a 3-0 vote to uphold the termination of former Le Mars police officer Jeremy Singer. The announcement was made Thursday morning by Civil Service Commission chair, Dennis Foulkema.
The civil service commission went into closed session to deliberate the case against Jeremy Singer, and came out of the closed session about an hour and twenty minutes later with their decision. The defendant, Jeremy Singer was not present at Thursday morning’s hearing, although his attorney, Justin Vondrak was at the hearing on Singer’s behalf. Singer was terminated in September from the Le Mars Police Department after it became known that negative and objectionable racist and sexists posts found on social media were attributed to former officer Jeremy Singer.
