Ocean Ridge commissioners upheld the termination of former Police Officer David Cazzolli, which the officer appealed during a special commission meeting Aug. 27.
Cazzolli was terminated in July after a citizen’s complaint prompted an internal investigation by the Ocean Ridge Police Department, Town Manager Kenneth Schenck wrote in a letter to Cazzolli that noted the file included violations of Police Department policy.
Cazzolli can further appeal the case to circuit court, according to Tara W. Duhy, attorney representing the Police Department. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement also will review the case as a matter of procedure, Ocean Ridge Lt. Chris Yannuzzi said.
