|ACTING LRPD CoP HAYWARD FINKS - TOO DUMB TO BE CHIEF?|
We obtained all the applications for the open LRPD Chief of Police Position. We found that three active LRPD officers have applied for the position, Assistant Chief's Alice Fulk and Hayward Finks along with patrolman Ethan Williams.
Finks was hired by LRPD in 1988 and Fulk in 1992 . Williams was first hired in 2005 and he quit in 2013 to attend college; he rejoined in 2017.
In Finks' application packet there is a letter in which he makes reference that he had attached a resume. Fink's resume was not included in the response the city provided to our FOI request.
So we attempted to obtain a copy of Fink's missing resume. We were not successful.
We noticed and odd coincidence in the files we obtained. Take a look at Finks' letter again.
Now look at the one from Fulk.
We find it too coincidental that the letterhead is similar, same blue color used for both. Did Finks and Fulk have the same secretary type their letter for them?
Did the secretary try and sabotage Finks?
Did Finks intentionally not submit one so that he could look at Fulk's and try and match it?
Or as we suspect, is Finks too dumb to realize that he forgot to include his resume if he actually had one prepared.
Stay tuned for updates.
***UPDATE - 01/16/18***
We sent an email to the city of Little Rock Human Resources Department about Finks' missing resume. They told us that they did not receive it. We then sent an email to Finks asking about it and he referred us to the HR department. We responded and pointed out that our email had our request to them and their response. We never heard back from him.
We also received information that Finks, like all other applicants, had to fill out an online application and upload a resume.
Finks did not understand our simple question and request. He tried to wiggle out and told us to talk to HR about the "application process" when we did not ask about that , we just wanted to know what happened to his resume.
Finks is just like his former boss, that befouled POS Kenton Tremar Buckner.
We don't need a Buckner clone as our new CoP.
