Fired police officer files claim against city

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho. - A veteran police officer who claims he was fired without cause has filed a tort claim against the city of Coeur d'Alene seeking $3 million in damages.
     
Dan Dixon, a 17-year veteran, was fired in July. His attorney, Lawrence Beck says Dixon's claims against the city will highlight the frivolous reasons behind the termination and the city's lack of policies for tracking employee work hours.
     
A tort claim is the first step to suing the city in state court. The city has several weeks to respond to the claim.
     
Deputy City Manager Jon Ingalls tells the Spokesman-Review the city has not yet had time to review the tort claim and he declined to comment.
     
Dixon contends he was let go over a series of minor complaints, including making adjustments to work hours filed by officers.
