Marc Lofton, the police officer who is the subject of a list of complaints, joined Statham’s police department after receiving an annual evaluation in Winder that was significantly worse than the year before.
Lofton worked for the Winder Police Department about two years before joining Statham’s department, from April 11, 2013, to June 23, 2015.
Lofton’s salary for the 2017 budget year is $36,013, according to the Statham budget.
He was paid $35,490 in Winder after a raise July 3, 2014, personnel records show.
He was criticized in his two Winder evaluations for not meeting the quality of work expected and for not doing accurate work with minimal supervision
The second evaluation was May 5, 2015. He applied to Statham police May 28 and turned in his notice in Winder June 10. He accepted a position with Statham June 9.
In his evaluation May 5, 2015, Lofton was marked as “needs improvement and/or does not meet expectations” for four items that had not been an issue on his first evaluation in Winder.
Those areas include talking to customers “in a professional manner,” being “able to handle job-related criticism appropriately and suggestions for work improvement,” meeting goals “identified from the prior evaluation” and improving “upon identified areas for improvement.”
