UPDATE: EEOC Denies Former SCMPD Sergeant's Claim

Posted: Updated:

The claim of another fired former Savannah-Chatham Metro Police officer was denied by the equal employment opportunity commission.

Malik Khaalis filed papers saying he had been discriminated against by the city and police department because of race and retaliation.

The EEOC responded, saying the city needs to take no action, and the agency was unable to conclude that any violations have occurred.


News 3 has learned that former Metro Police Sergeant Malik Khaalis has officially been terminated.

City Manager Stephanie Cutter upheld his termination this afternoon.

Last week, Interim Chief Juliette Tolbert recommended he be fired.

Khaalis appealed his case to the City Manager who upheld his firing.

Khaalis is under indictment for various charges connected to an independent investigation.

That investigation claimed that he was covering up drug cases back in 2010.
