Hermiston Police Chief Dan Coulombe will remain on paid leave until the spring -- and his retirement will kick in during mid-February.


Former Hillsboro Police Chief Ron Louie ...

Former Hillsboro Police Chief Ron Louie told the Hermiston City Council on Thursday that Chief of Police Dan Coulombe "quite literally fostered an organizational culture of fear."

...
Louie, currently an adjunct professor at Portland University, was chosen to look into allegations by the Hermiston Police Association that Coulombe habitually mistreated employees and was abusive.
...
On Sept. 12, Coulombe announced that he would retire from the department in return for a seven-month severance package that included full pay and benefits.
Coulombe is on administrative leave until April 1, 2012.
...
The report detailed Louie's review process, described as a "snapshot" of the department, and emphasized the level of professionalism within the department, despite the morale troubles fostered by Coulombe.
Louie also stated that the 74-page document was not designed to be "fair" in the sense that Coulombe would be able to respond.
...
According to Louie, those problems stemmed directly from Coulombe, and suggestions the police union letter was a ploy in labor negotiations were discarded.
...
Louie added that several officers told him explicitly that they would leave the Hermiston department if Coulombe returned.
...
Louie recommended to the council that Coulombe not be allowed to have contact with the Hermiston Police Department, except through Acting Chief Jason Edmiston, and that Coulombe should return all city property.

...
According to Louie, Coulombe sent a department-wide email on Sept. 22, a move personnel saw as "the chief wants to remind us that he's still here and in charge."
...
The review also compared Coulombe's behavior toward employees with domestic abuse, stating Coulombe belittled officers and staff in public with words, tone of voice and body language.
...
"I deeply apologize for failing you," Brookshier told the city council, tempering his remarks by adding, "I will never have anything but the warmest personal feelings for Dan and his family."
...
I attended yesterday's meeting, and could not believe what I heard coming out of the city council's mouths...Brookshire's comments about his warmest personal feelings for Coulombe & his family??What about the fellings of the people he treated this way? I'm sorry , but that's who you should be concerned about! And his fake Hollywood speach ..including his fake tears??PLEASE! He deserves a Oscar for that one!
...
So, the City Manager is apologizing to the "City Council", and has warm feelings towards Coulombe and his family, and is sorry for the turmoil created for the "city" and the "police department"?
...
Coulombe and Brookshire have the same management style and treat those under them the same way.

The Hermiston City Council approved a negotiated severance agreement with Chief of Police Dan Coulombe following an executive session Monday night.
The agreement, already signed by Coulombe, places the chief on administrative leave until April 1, 2012. Coulombe, who is eligible for full retirement on Feb. 15, 2012, has the option to resign or retire before April 1, and will still receive full wages and benefits up until the agreed date.
The agreement follows a Hermiston Police Association request in early August for a "fair and valid" investigation into Coulombe's management style and behavior, described as abusive and bullying.
City Manager Ed Brookshier placed Coulombe on administrative leave Aug. 22, pending the selection of a suitable investigator.
...
Coulombe agreed to continue to assist the city with defending any lawsuits filed against the city that name him as a defendant, including current lawsuits filed by Hermiston Police Officer Doug Smith and Mitch Myers and Debbie Westwood, owners of Nookies Bistro and Bar.
...
Coulombe also agreed to release the city, council members and mayor and other city employees from any claims or liability that could arise from his severance. Coulombe did not, however, release employees of the Hermiston Police Department from liability, specifically from "tortious conduct against him, including but not limited to defamation, slander and libel."
Following the council vote to approve the severance agreement, Coulombe was granted an opportunity to address the council.
"Over the last 10 years the police department has made tremendous strides in numerous areas," Coulombe read from a prepared statement. "Together we have enhanced our service delivery, our efficiency and effectiveness, our accountability, and our interaction with the community..."
During his remarks, Coulombe referenced numerous departmental awards and dedication to providing formal education for officers and staff.
"My role as a change agent required specific determination and drive, and doing the right thing, not the popular thing," Coulombe said.
...
"Thank you Dan," Myers said, "you did exactly what you were brought on board to do."
...
Coulombe does have seven days to rescind the agreement.
...
Maybe that Coulombe is out of the picture the officers won't be such jerks because they won't be working in such hostile work situations but time will tell. tbeattie, Coulombe is retiring and is going to get paid, he is not going to be the police chief anymore, get out of his life and stop obsessing about him. There is no need to call cities that he has applied for.
...
Chief Coulombe applied for Police Chief in Olympia Washington and he made one of the finalist. I am very happy to say that I informed Olympia Officials about the problems Coulombe had created in your city and that I was extremely concerned that our city was considering him for Police Chief in our city. I can't tell you how relieved I am that Hermiston is finally seeing what kind a person Coulombe really is. (A poor excuse for a police officer) Not only has he created lawsuits against your city but he also violated my civil rights and a law suit is planned. I will also file a complaint with the United States Department of Justice for violating my right and false arrest. If the people of Hermiston sit back and do nothing then they will continue to pay Coulombe and reward him for the damage he has done to their city. The people of Hermiston need to stand up to the city and not pay Coulombe and if they continue to pay them just remember every one of them in the next election.
...
Why is the City council approving this tremendous severence package (where else are you gonna get canned and still get 6 months of full benefits) when Coulombe is still threatening the members of the police department? If he is going to get to keep his certification and get benefits until he retires, the City should make him agree to leave HPD in peace, period. Enough of the misplaced support, the people who are staying here to try and fix the police department need some City support now! Step up council, put your support where we citizens want it. We want a quality police department, so get Coulombe and the taint he has left completely gone! Enough already.
