The only law enforcement certification currently held by tainted ABC Enforcement Director Boyce Hamlet is being revoked according to Department of Community Correction Deputy Director Dan Roberts.
Roberts stated that he was under the impression that once Hamlet ceased working for DCC, his specialized certification would be de-activated after 90 days. Hamlet worked as a probation office from 2004 through 2007, by hiding the fact that he has been employed and fired by the Arkansas State Police for cheating on an exam and lying multiple times to investigators during an internal investigation, in violation of state laws.
Roberts was provided information from the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards and Training that indicated Hamlet and another ABC Enforcement agent, Ken Coon, Jr. still possessed certification that they obtained when they were employed by DCC. Roberts stated he would take action immediately to have their certifications revoked.
One wonders how long it will take for the Governor or DFA Director Larry Walther to remove Hamlet and restore public confidence in The Department of Finance and Administration and the ABC.
