Winston-Salem police officer's firing upheld by city manager

Robert Lee Baker
Winston-Salem City Manager Lee Garrity upheld the termination of police Officer Robert Lee Baker in a final ruling on Wednesday.

Baker was suspended without pay in August for conduct unbecoming, a violation of department rules.

Garrity noted in his letter to Baker that the violation "was based on your actions in officially reporting off-duty employment hours worked for the Housing Authority of Winston-Salem (HAWS) when you did not actually work that full number of hours. An investigation by the professional standards division revealed that on multiple occasions you left your off-duty employment before the scheduled end of the shift. Yet based on your submissions to HAWS and the hours entered into the police department's off-duty employment tracking software, you were paid for working full shifts and thus received a greater amount of pay than you were lawfully entitled.
