HOBART | Hobart police Sgt. David Grissom has received a two-day unpaid suspension for insubordination.

The suspension, which was approved by the Board of Public Works, was set to be served on Wednesday and Thursday, Police Chief Rick Zormier said.

Although Zormier declined to elaborate on the specifics of the June 28 incident, Mayor Brian Snedecor said Grissom was being disciplined because he failed to dress in his police uniform while working security at a Jaycees event.

Grissom declined comment.

Grissom, who works in the department's detective unit, was one of the finalists for the position of police chief earlier this year.

Snedecor named Zormier the new chief on March 1, replacing interim police chief Vance Thompson.

Thompson, who served as deputy chief of police, was named interim police chief Jan. 17 by Snedecor to replace former Police Chief Jeff White, who resigned Jan. 15.

In a letter to the Board of Works, White announced his plans to retire from the department on Sept. 2.

White is a 20-year veteran of the Hobart police department.
