LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Corrections Fraternal Order of Police returned no confidence vote in Louisville Metro Corrections Director Mark Bolton on Tuesday.
The vote at the Local 77 Union passed with 87%, according to FOP President Tracy Dotson.
Bolton has been under fire from jail staff and inmates.
Complaints from corrections officer include safety concerns and mandatory overtime schedules.
"Our contract mandates a limit of 16 hours per week on that, Dotson said after the vote. "For months, we've routinely seen 30 and 40-hour forced overtime weeks on members. We've filed grievances on those issues, but they shouldn't happen at all."
LMDC is also at the center of a lawsuit that alleges false imprisonment and unlawful detainment at the jail.
LMDC Assistant Director Steve Durham told WAVE 3 News they are digesting the information and looking at the process. Durham expects Bolton to make a statement on Wednesday.
