Ottumwa police officials are denying allegations of ticket-writing quotas. The issue was raised by an officer during a union meeting. Ottumwa police chief Dennis Massey says the department is forbidden from even enacting such a policy. He says the state code prevents law enforcement agencies for establishing such quotas. Union representative Rick Willit says an officer who brought forth the allegation was reprimanded and moved to another job. City administrator Steve Rassmusen disputes that. He says no one was reprimanded, but the county attorney did review the allegation.
