Sarcoxie Police Chief apologizes for inappropriate Facebook post


Sarcoxie Police Chief Brandy Corum issued an apology today for remarks she made April 20 on her personal Facebook page.

In a letter that was posted on the Sarcoxie Police Department Facebook page, Corum apologized to a woman who was trying to sell her car to raise money for her daughter's legal expenses.

According to the letter, Corum wrote the following in the April 20 post:

"Perfect car if you want to be tied to felony kidnapping, felony child endangerment and an Amber Alert...Only driven into Oklahoma with a missing 7-year-old in the backseat."

In her apology, Corum wrote, "As the police chief for the City of Sarcoxie, this was unbecoming of me and my role with the Sarcoxie Police Department. 

"Such a post is a betrayal of the trust of a community member. I should, and will, hold my (sic) to a higher standard to not cause any unnecessary drama or discontent against the City of Sarcoxie and the Sarcoxie Police Department."

The apology comes only a few days after Corum completed a two-week suspension for what Mayor Don Triplett termed "improper use of social media," as well as Corum not showing proper respect to him.
