The Winder police officer arrested in December for writing a bad check to a local grocery store still has a job as a certified police officer for the city, but no longer serves as the school resource officer at Winder-Barrow High School. Tracy Wild is now one of two full-time code enforcement officers responsible for enforcing city codes and ordinances.
Winder police chief Dennis Dorsey officially transferred her to the new position Dec. 17 following an internal investigation of her arrest and the handling of her case. He also placed her on 40 hours of unpaid suspension and one year’s probation, required her to serve another 14 hours of community service, and referred her to financial counseling. The sanctions are listed in a copy of the six-page report that the Barrow Journal obtained Monday.
