NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - A whistleblower who threw the New Albany Police Department into turmoil has been fired.

The New Albany Police Merit Commission voted to fire Officer Laura Schook Monday after she raised allegations of corruption against the department.

Schook said she initially informed the merit commission in March of "serious criminal conduct by members of this department, an alleged corrupt police administration and facilitation of a discriminatory and hostile work environment."

Several investigations found there was no evidence of wrongdoing by officers in the department.

Schook has 10 days to appeal the decision.
