Individuals Involved: The entire department!
Outfit: Waldo Police Department

-A Waldo police officer was fired by the city manager for insubordination towards the chief for undisclosed reasons (Likely refusing to obey the illegal ticket quota)
-His fellow bottom level officers felt their jobs were in jeopardy and requested a City Council hearing
-The officers laid out a list of grievances towards the department command, including confirming what citizens and motorists (Waldo is the 3rd worst speedtrap in the country) have known: they have ticket quotas. Which violates the Florida law they are supposed to be enforcing
-The officer that was terminated has been reinstated by the city council and the police chief is under review
-Half of Waldo’s entire revenue comes from traffic tickets.
