This is a copy of the survey that the local lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police presented to Casper City Council on April 4. The document is unsigned and is based on a survey of Casper Police Department employees, including snippets of their anonymous comments. The survey depicts low morale at the department, frustrations with the leadership of Jim Wetzel and complaints about how city officials handled previous reports of problems within the department. The document led to calls for an investigation into the department and city officials on the part of several City Council members. Wetzel was dismissed as chief roughly one month after the survey was presented to Council. This copy includes pen marks not part of the original document. A "clean" copy can be obtained from the City of Casper.
