Police Chief Greg Benton, in a written release, said an investigation was launched after a complaint was made regarding an inappropriate relationship between Bonds, 37, and a student. Benton said Bonds, when interviewed, confessed to his involvement. Bonds is expected to be terminated.
“The Dothan Police Department is dedicated to the protection of all citizens,” Benton said. “Its men and women consider it a great honor to be tasked with upholding the laws of the city, state and nation. Our officers are held to a higher standard and expectations are great. When one of our officers violates the position of trust bestowed upon him, it is the department’s obligation to investigate and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.”
