    Council votes to fire New Miami Police Chief

    The village council voted 5-1 to fire Police Chief Kenneth Cheek. The council found that Cheek used excessive force on a suspect who was in custody in 2012. And that he didn't investigate one of his officers when he was using excessive force in that same incident.

    New Miami police chief on leave

    Village unable to get insurance coverage for police department


    April 4, 2014

    The Village of New Miami’s police chief has apparently been suspended from his position. Kenneth Cheek, who took the position in 2010, was suspended with pay Thursday night following an executive session during a village council meeting, according to Jewel Collins, village administrative assistant.

    His suspension comes just weeks after the village was dropped from its insurance and police were ordered to stay off the streets and not drive village-owned police cruisers as a result. Cheek had previously told the Journal-News that the village’s insurance plan had been cancelled as a result of excessive lawsuits and insurance claims.

    Two of those lawsuits, both of which were just settled out of court within the last year, accused Cheek of unnecessarily choking one suspect and slamming another woman — one of Cheek’s relatives — to the ground. A civil suit in February also pulled the plug on the village’s controversial speed cameras.
