Seven members of the Bishop Police Department released a lengthy “Letter of No Confidence in Bishop Police Chief Chris Carter” – detailing alleged misdeeds by Chief Carter and other City of Bishop officials.
Brent Gillespie, Mark Gutierrez, Doug Mairs, David Jepson, Jared Waasdorp, Bryan Rossy and Mike Mairs signed their names to the press release that was distributed to the Bishop City Council, Sierra Wave Media and other Eastern Sierra media outlets.
There are 11 sworn officers of the Bishop Police Department, not counting Chief Carter and police dispatchers.
In July, Chief Carter announced his plans to retire at the end of September.
Sierra Wave Media contacted the Bishop Police Department for comment from Chief Carter, but he is on vacation. All calls were referred to Bishop City Administrator Jim Tatum. Tatum told Sierra Wave Media the City of Bishop had no comment at this time, but would respond to the letter.
