Cowboy Cop (Who is not a Cop) Must Repay $30,122

- MBN Director John Dowdy not a certified law enforcement officer. 
- Director spent thousands on clothes. 
- Director used MBN vehicles for commuting. 
- Director lied about MBN personnel buying back comp time. 

State Auditor Shad White issued the following statement and report on the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics.

State Auditor Shad White released an audit of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) which shows MBN’s Executive Director will be required to repay $30,122 to taxpayers.

The improper payments identified in the audit came, in part, in the form of compensatory time buy backs. “Compensatory time” is paid time off earned for working beyond traditional work hours, though, in some circumstances, agencies are allowed to pay employees for (“buy back”) that compensatory time instead of giving paid time off. In order to buy back this compensatory time, MBN is required to obtain permission from the Commissioner of Public Safety, and the Director of MBN (John Dowdy) was paid for compensatory time without that permission and over the objection of MBN staff.

In addition, compensatory time buy backs are much more limited for civilians than they are for law enforcement officers. Despite not being certified as a law enforcement officer, the Director of MBN asserted that he is a law enforcement officer and exceeded the compensatory buy back limitation for civilians.

The Director was also given a clothing allowance that, by state law, may only be utilized by law enforcement officers.

Mississippi law clearly defines the requirements to be considered a sworn law enforcement officer, and the executive director of MBN does not meet them. Law enforcement officers are required by law to meet the minimum qualifications set forth by the Board on Law Enforcement Officer Standards and Training. The Director is not certified by that board.

Auditors also determined the Director circumvented the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and the internal controls designed to prevent unauthorized buy backs. The federal protections created by FLSA are not intended for highly paid managers and directors.

"The Auditor’s office must fairly enforce the laws around spending. Everyone—whether you are a clerk in a small town or a director of a large state agency—must follow those laws. Enforcing the law fairly is exactly what we are doing in this audit,” said State Auditor White.

These MBN findings were made during a routine compliance audit. “Thank you to the Finance and Compliance Audit team of the Office of the State Auditor,” said White. “This audit is the result of their diligence and expertise.”

Kingfish note:
Here are some key excerpts from the report.

During our review of salary and fringe benefits, we noted that the Executive Director of the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics (MBN) directed his staff to buy back his compensatory time on five separate occasions. While the Department of Public Safety (DPS) has special legislative power to purchase compensatory time from employees, authority must come from the Commissioner of Public Safety (as MBN is a Division of such) and must be approved by the Commissioner on a case-by-case basis. The Executive Director received no such permission for four of the five buy backs. Additionally, the Executive Director of MBN did not alert the Commissioner of DPS that such payments had been made. Upon inquiry by auditors, MBN personnel stated that there was no documentation of Commissioner approval for the Executive Director’s buy backs. Additionally, the Commissioner of DPS verbally confirmed he had not authorized the MBN Executive Director to purchase buyouts for himself. (Translation: Fisher threw Dowdy under the bus). (p.5)
 All memorandums provided by DPS only allow up to 50 or 60 hours of compensatory buy backs.  In two instances, the Executive Director was reimbursed for 200 or more hours....
The Director also considered himself to be a sworn law enforcement officer since he was the Director of MBN.  However, Director Dowdy never graduated from a law enforcement academy and is not qualified to be a sworn law enforcement officer under Mississippi law. (p.6)  The law also requires the Director to become certified within a year "from his employment start date of November 1, 2016."

DPS paid compensation of $313,261 from November 1, 2017 through today to Director Dowdy even though he is not a certified law enforcement officer.  The State Auditor recommended DPS formally declare the Director is a sworn LEO.  

DPS strongly disagreed with the State Auditor, claiming it didn't have to grant specific permission for the comp time buybacks.  The State Auditor said no MBN officers corroborated the Director's claim that MBN personnel were aware of the buybacks (in other words, the Director lied).

The Director also helped himself to a clothing allowance meant for law enforcement officers.  The purchases included $1,011 for boots and belts (got to be styling), $195 for Cole Haan shoes (Blew our money on paper welt fake stitched crap?), and $1,244 for polo shirts, blazers, ties, and other items.  The Director disagreed with the State Auditor as he claimed he is a sworn law enforcement officer and entitled to the clothing allowance.

The State Auditor ruled the Executive Director and four of his minions (p.10) used state vehicles to commute to work.   MBN agreed with the findings except for the claim against the Director.  MBN argued Director Dowdy is a sworn law enforcement officer and exempt from such limitations.

Bank accounts? Did someone mention bank accounts? MBN holds nine bank accounts.  Two checks were addressed to an authorized signer of account.  There is no monthly reconciliation of any of the nine bank accounts.  Only one person receives checks, makes deposits, signs checks, and approves checks.  Put these guys in charge of an HOA.

Simply put, Director Dowdy thinks he is a sworn law enforcement officer and that such status protects him from triffling things such as the law.

Governor Tate Reeves needs to clean house at DPS and MBN come January.

That’s Phil and Fishers damn boy. Way more corruption than that within DPS look at Fisher Mr. White. He is running for the hills now. He spoke openly a year ago without his attorneys present how he conducted himself while screwing over Troopers. Again! Thank you Mr. White for carrying out this investigation and showing no favoritism towards these corrupt animals.

So let me get this straight, Cowboy thinks he is a law enforcement officer because he was appointed to run MBN. He felt he was entitled to extra pay due to all of his hard work at destroying the agency he ran for the past few years. And to top it off he didn’t feel the need to pay his employees salaries based on total years of experience as spelled out in MS code. Damn, the citizens of this great state and the employees of that agency are so fortunate to have such high quality leadership. Hopefully the Governor elect appoints someone with integrity to replace Fisher and Cowboy.

Pretty petty "note" that you added, KF - "Fisher threw Dowdy under the bus".

NOT. Truth is, although because of your hate for Fisher you would not admit it - Fisher told the truth!

Gosh damn! Know you can't believe it, given your total disdain for the Commish. But, when it comes to an auditor sticking a mike in one's face, most folks will tell the truth as long as it doesn't implicate them.

Fisher did his job and answered White's folks when asked.

If you wanted to find him "throwing Dowdy under the bus", that would have been Fisher calling White in to look at Dowdy's actions.

(Bet this never gets posted, but what the hell. Truth hurts.)

When did Dowdy get a doctorate? Has he been working on a degree while being Director? Notice the letter addresses him as “Dr.” John Dowdy. A lawyer who has a J.D. doesn’t not have a terminal degree and, therefore, is not entitled to be addressed as “Doctor.”

Well Barney Fifey Phil Bryant has done it again!!!!!!!! Narcotic enforcement is pretty important, look who he puts there and what happens to the agency. Prison and Corrections, pretty important and look who he had running the prison system and he never looked into fraud that was reported to him. Our children, pretty damn important, Phil Billy puts a retired judge with no experience so he can get his high 4 retirement years and CPS is in the tank with nothing set up from legislation that was passed, nothing happening to protect our kids and that is just WRONG! I could go on here but when is any worthwhile reporter going to shine a light on this horrible legacy!!!!!

This is absolutely HILARIOUS. Plain and simple, he didn't graduate from the police academy so he isn't a police officer, agent, or investigator. He is a glorified civilian. He was hired as director and is the most paid at the agency, yet he thinks he is "owed" extra money through comp time. What a crock of crap. Look here folks, go to the academy if you want to be the police or "tell people you are the police". Tell him to go sit down behind a desk somewhere and push some paper.

Mr Dowdy had retired from the US Attorneys Office. He had to have a little common sense! What was he thinking! Must have thought our State Government workers were too dumb to know what he was doing, was unethical and flat out wrong. I am appalled at his actions.

When the Director is committing malfeasance acts, dang I wonder what the employees are doing!

You know what, on the other hand, his boss approved it.

Mr Dowdy you are one bold man. However, State Auditor Chad White is the man.

4:30, and then head over to the gaming commission - they have a crew of "investigators" on perpetual travel who - as a matter of practice - overcharge license applicants on time and travel expenses (take a good look at overseas travel), and then commit mail and wire fraud when they transmit the fraudulent invoices.

How is it that Dowdy prosecuted and sent people to prison for much less than this and is allowed to pay back????? He (they) never allowed anything to be paid back without prison time. This will be investigated and this if Shad lets this go, he is corrupt as well. Phil is an idiot!!!!! I agree with 12/5 at 1:12 pm this is a crock!!!!! Shad looks like he is a part of this if he lets this go and it also looks like Phil is telling him what to do, since he is letting Dowdy off without an indictment and conviction for his crimes!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

It is widely known at the Gaming Commission that the deputy director threatened to expose the issue with travel and billing if he didn't get promoted, he's a lawyer and I'm pretty sure the good (juris) doctor committed an ethics violation by not reporting a pattern and practice of fraudulent billing and institutional fraud. Look into it Shad, and get the FBI involved.

This is a good start. We all know there are even bigger names out there who have done similar things.

If Shad White could take one of those good ol boys down, someone no one would expect, someone more powerful and influential than Dowdy...

..then I think we're looking at Shad White becoming the youngest governor in the history of our state.

8:45 - the state auditor INDICTED the guy from homeland security for MUCH less, and that was a bullshit investigation spearheaded by David Huggins that used taxpayer money to target a political enemy of Stacy Pickering.

This is actual fraud enabled by DPS leadership, not some made up bullshit - SO WHERE'S THE INDICTMENT SHAD??

C'mon 11:26, you should know by now that there are two sets of rules. Dowdy will do "Queen for a Day" and get off scot free, although if it is found that he falsified records he could be in for an ethics violation like McDaniel from the gaming commission. And what if he does get convicted of a felony, what effect would that have on his retirement from the DOJ?

Anonymous said...

@ 9:03, true, and if Delbert and Tater are the reformers they've sold themselves to be, maybe they should look into an alternative to the DPS/MHP/MBN organizational structure. MHP has way too much influence over some really important things in the state, and frankly, they aren't smart enough to be in charge of the criminal information center, the fusion center, homeland security, or anything related to grants or financial management. Break up DPS and put the troopers back in their place(on the road), establish a state bureau of investigation made up of real cops (not troopers) with a narcotics division. And while they're at it, return all of the uniformed troopers back to road duty who are in admin positions and replace them with civilians who will do the job better, and for less money. Seriously, how many uniforms are sitting in offices while the Commissioner whines about a trooper shortage - I call bullshit!

Oh, and Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself!

A couple of quick thoughts as it relates to John Dowdy from my knowledge learned over the last several years:

1. Dowdy was appointed as Director of MBN after he helped protect politicians in the DMR boat scandal. It was payback for hiding evidence while he was Assistant U.S. Attorney during the above scandal. Because of his actions, he was rendered "Giglio-impaired". A Giglio impaired law enforcement officer (Assist. U.S. Attorney at the time) is one against whom there is potential impeachment evidence that would render the officer or agent's testimony of debatable value in a case, meaning that a case that depends primarily on the testimony of a single Giglio-impaired witness is at risk.
2. There has been a mad exodus of experienced and remarkably talented MBN agents due to Dowdy's polices and the fear of retaliation if an agent did something that Dowdy did not like.
3. Dowdy changed the promotional exam so that his personal favorites could be promoted and get higher salaries.
4. Many of the agents who failed the promotional test miserably were promoted to high paying supervisory roles anyway.
5. Dowdy's Deputy Director has admitted to sleeping with female agents and putting them in higher paying roles.
6. Dowdy did not meet the requirements to continue in his position of Director of MBN. He has one year to go to police academy and he never went.

This case is much larger than the need for Dowdy to repay 30K. It goes to positions higher and lower than the Director of MBN. It also speaks to character, or lack thereof, of the person appointed to run a state law enforcement agency.

I believe that a further investigation would yield serious flaws within the leadership at MBN and DPS. These flaws would include theft, infidelity, sexual harassment, misuse of state property, embezzlement and other serious crimes.

Billy Jack said...

A giglio impaired federal agent cannot testify in court and therefore not able to perform law enforcement activities. In times past agents were fired! For many years now they have simply been promoted to supervisory positions where they are unlikely to have the need to testify. This is especially true with "protected classes". AUSA's are also unable to appear before federal magistrates or district court judges rendering them more useless than they already are. The aforementioned scenario makes for the need to resign or retire. How persons of this character can be appointed to lead a state law enforcement agency is indeed sad. And believe me when I say all of this was known to the person(s) who was responsible for hiring Dowdy.

Anonymous said...

Billy Jack-----You are 100% correct. MBN would not hire a brand new agent at 35k that was giglio impaired. Why appoint a Director as such? The vetting process for such a position is much better than that, the proper people knew about the issue. Why appoint Dowdy? The answer is a political favor, plain and simple. The Governor should have to explain his thought process behind this particular appointment.

Dowdy’s retirement from the US Attorney’s Office was not voluntary. He got caught up in some stinky stuff he was doing concerning a family member. Was either retire or be retired.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.
