Chief Steve A. Bracknell of the Lake Mary Florida Police Department
Such is not the case with the employment practices of the Lake Mary Police Department under the leadership of Chief Steve Bracknell.
Documents would reveal that an Investigative Report would be completed by Inspector Steve A. Bracknell on February 11, 2002 for the part-time position of Law Enforcement Officer.
And yes this the same Bracknell who is presently the Chief of Police for the Lake Mary Police Department.(6)
In reading this Background Investigative Report, by Insp.
Bracknell, there is no mention at all of the Internal Investigation of Officer James J. Wallace by the WPPD which resulted in Wallace tendering his resignation on July 16, 1999.
"On February 4, 2002 the applicant submitted to a C.V.S.A. examination conducted by Inspector Steve A. Bracknell.
So how is it that Inspector Steve A. Bracknell failed to locate the WPPD Internal Investigation Report Case Number 99-010 dated 17 June 1999? (4).
Or was Insp.
Bracknell able to locate this report?
And if Insp.

(Bracknell) not include the facts of the investigation in his

also conducted the Background Investigative Report on DAVID A. PRINCE.
It was revealed that Bracknell

could to give those former Winter Park Police Department
rejects a job in the City of Lake Mary.

But wait, Bracknell now holds the position of Operations Commander with the Lake Mary Police Department and once again Steve A. Bracknell fails to mention the 1999 WPPD investigation and once again Operations Commander Steve A. Bracknell recommends that Wallace continue with the applicant process. (14)
Steve A. Bracknell becomes the Chief of Police for Lake Mary Florida.
Lt. David A. Price continues his reign of sexual harassment under the leadership of Chief Bracknell.
But our story about the hiring practices of Steve A. Bracknell
is not exclusive to just men.
It seems as if Chief Bracknell not only does everything he can to conceal the past bad behavior of former male Winter Park Police Officers but he is an equal opportunity employer and hires a former female Winter Park Police officer who also resigned while under investigation.
How many more of the officers of the Lake Mary Police Department
are of the fine character standards as those of Bracknell
, Prince, Wallace and now Lilja?
From the firing of Steve A. Bracknell
from the Winter Park Police Department
to the resignations of the above identified officers while under investigation of the Winter Park Police Department
