"Cameron Alexander Brafford, 22, was terminated form the Greensboro Police Department today after officials received additional information linking the officer to several thefts of business checks from his employer in Denton, NC.
The termination comes less than 48 hours after he was arrested and charged with: one count of Larceny by Employee, two counts of Forgery, two counts of Uttering of Forged Instrument, and one count of Obtaining Property by False Pretense.
Detectives from the Denton (NC) Police Department alerted Greensboro Police Department officials of Brafford’s alleged involvement in the crimes the afternoon of July 16th. GPD detectives assisted with the investigation and the two agencies developed sufficient evidence to charge Brafford with the offenses.
“We are incredibly disappointed by this young man’s actions” said Chief Ken Miller. “We entrust our officers to enforce and uphold the law. Willful violations of the law are counter to everything we stand for. They contradict our values, embarrass our profession, and harm the reputation the good men and women who are committed to selfless service.”
Brafford was still in probationary status at the time of his arrest. His termination cannot be appealed.
Brafford joined GPD on Nov, 1, 2013. He graduated from the 97th Police Basic Introductory Course in May 2014 and was receiving supervised patrol officer training at the time of this investigation."
