GPD chief recommends action after lieutenant is arrested for bribery


Terry Austin

GREENFIELD — The Greenfield Board of Works and Public Safety voted Tuesday to suspend a Greenfield police officer indefinitely without pay following the officer’s arrest on felony charges.

Terry Austin, a lieutenant and shift supervisor, is accused of bribery and official misconduct, both Class D felonies. Austin admitted he offered several fellow police officers a $200 steak dinner to pull over his ex-wife and tow her car for driving on a suspended license, according to court documents filed Friday.
