KCOA Votes Resolution Of "No Confidence" For Commissioner Gregory Johnson

Posted: Updated:

(LEX 18) A letter from the Kentucky Conservation Officer's Association and Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100 President Rodney Milburn states that on February 5 a resolution of "no confidence" was voted regarding Commissioner Gregory Johnson as a Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. 

The vote happened at the KCOA Board of Directors meeting.

The letter stated that the KCOA has declared that they have no confidence in Commissioner Gregory Johnson’s ability to guide the agency ethically and with resolve to provide employees with fair and impartial treatment. They have asked commissioners to remove Gregory Johnson immediately as Commissioner of the Department. 

They state their reasons as:

  • His lack of supervision of the Department has resulted in grievances by officers over promotions, to which a Deputy Commissioner was involved, resulting in no promotions being made, which has effected moral among officers and leaving numerous positions vacant throughout the agency.

  • His failure to take action on the investigation concerning Commissioner Jimmy Bevins regarding the duck baiting case which was improperly handled by Colonel Rodney Coffey and Captain Richard Skaggs.

  • Although the Ethics Commission has an investigation regarding Colonel Coffey – which most likely caused his resignation, Commissioner Johnson has failed to direct any action on Captain Richard Skaggs after clearly being aware of his improper conduct along with Coffey by their interfering in the Bevins investigation.

  • Commissioner Gregory Johnson has failed the sportsmen and sportswomen of Kentucky by not seeking adequate compensation for the officers of KDFWR. Conservation Officers at KDFWR are among the bottom three states for officers pay nationally; His failure to address this pay issue is causing the agency to lose current officers to other Law Enforcement agencies in the state; Further, the low pay effects the recruitment of qualified candidates to fill existing vacancies throughout the Commonwealth.

  • KCOA members were refused by Commissioner Johnson to be placed on the agenda of the December 8, 2017, Commission meeting. Historically, officers representing the Conservation Officers Association present a monetary donation of several thousand dollars intended for youth scholarship’s for the summer camps. This action by Commissioner Johnson is inexplicable.
