I-Team: Henderson police chief's departure raises questions

LAS VEGAS - The city of Henderson is searching for a new police chief while questions remain about why the former chief left.

On May 18, Chief Patrick Moers was removed from duty by the city manager.  A city of Henderson spokesman told the I-Team, he couldn't comment on confidential personnel matters.

On June 1, the city manager made a formal announcement that Moers and Deputy Chief Bobby Long voluntarily separated from the city.

On June 23, a city spokesman still wouldn't comment on why the two men left or what happened but the I-Team was able to obtain what they were paid.

According to the spokesman, Moers was paid out for unused sick and vacation days totaling more than $163,000. Long was paid nearly $229,000.

Moers' most recent salary was more than $185,000. Long's was nearly $169,000.

Just last week, the city of Henderson announced there's a nationwide search for a chief and the new mayor was sworn in. Mayor Debra March has a 100 days plan which includes enhancing transparency and communications. Even so, there is still no word on why the head of the police department left or was forced out.
