LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - A police officer was served a letter of suspension in January for 10 days because he violated a department policy.

That suspension has now been reduced after appeal to three days.

Sgt. Willie Davis of the Little Rock Police Department was originally ordered to serve a 10-day suspension when it was determined that he violated rules and regulations, section 1/2004.00, which states:

"It shall be the duty of all commanders, supervisors, and officers to take corrective action and submit a written report to an immediate supervisor whenever they learn through personal observation or report any violation of these Rules and Regulation ..."

The appeal hearing on Sept. 13 lasted 4 and a half hours. The Little Rock Civil Service Commission upheld the City's decision to discipline Sgt. Davis but reduced his suspension to three days.

This is an updated version of an earlier story.
