Corrigan Police Officer Facing Charges of Theft and Oppression, Relieved of Duty, CORRIGAN, August 9, 2019 - On August 6, 2019 Corrigan Police Chief Darrell Gibson was made aware of possible illegal activity involving a full-time officer within the police department. Chief Gibson, upon learning this information, and the circumstances surrounding the allegations against the officer, contacted the Polk County District Attorney Lee Hon who in turn contacted the Texas Rangers and requested an independent outside investigation be conducted. The officer is identified as Joe Robertson Jr. Robertson has been accused of theft by public servant and official oppression. This investigation is being handled by the Texas Rangers. Robertson Jr. was immediately terminated from the Corrigan Police Department. Robertson had been a full-time employee of the Corrigan Police Department since May of this year. Chief Gibson states, those who break the very laws that they are sworn to enforce will not be tolerated and I will root them out unapologetically. This department and this city deserve better. Overall, the men and women of the Corrigan Police Department do a great job for our citizens, however, any behavior that impeaches their credibility or which can potentially erode public trust will not be tolerated.
