INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An officer from the Marion Police Department was fired after making alleged racist posts on Facebook.

On Monday, the Marion chief of police was notified of some recent Facebook posts from Officer Chaz Foy’s personal account that raised concern.

After reviewing the alleged racist post, police stated in a release that “the posts are not in keeping standards of the Marion Police Department.”

Chief of Police Angela Haley said, “I do not condone this type of behavior and will not tolerate it.”
