GADSDEN, AL (WBRC) -

The detective commander of the Gadsden Police Department will keep her job after the city's Civil Service Board set aside her 30 day suspension.

Captain Regina May received a 30 day unpaid suspension and one year probation from the Civil Service Boar, but that suspension has been set aside, according to her attorney. May will not miss any days of work and will keep her rank of captain.

May was found to have violated three regulations: failing to communicate with city hall by way of the chain of command, spreading a rumor through a conversation with the county's Drug Task Force commander, and failing to assign property theft cases to detectives.

The charges were brought to the city's attention by Police Chief John Crane.

Board member Alice Pruett called May an asset to the police department. After the hearing, May said she respect's the board's decision and plans to continue to do her job as best she can.
