JPS Safety And Security Officer Terminated

JAMESTOWN – A Jamestown Public School safety and security officer, who was arrested and charged with a crime in March, was terminated from his position at the district Tuesday night.

Jamestown Police Officer Kenneth V. Nellis III, 40, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a Class D felony, last month.

According to the Jamestown Public School Board of Education online meeting minutes, the officer was terminated during an executive session discipline matter.

Police Chief Harry Snellings told WNYNewsNow last month that Nellis was suspended without pay after the department filed the charge.

Nellis has been a Jamestown Police Officer for the past four years.

  1. Like I said before we went on vacation and he lived next door to us! We hired him to come into our house to feed our cat ! To our surprise we came up missing a dozen gold jewelry pieces! At the time he wasn’t a policeman! We reported it but to no avail! He then move away and of all things became a Jamestown Policeman!
