Officer resigns from Swanton PD

Staff Report

Swanton Village Council last week approved the resignation of police officer Kevin Howard, effective May 6.

Howard was placed on unpaid administrative leave on April 5 when he was charged with domestic violence.

The charge was amended Tuesday in Oregon Municipal Court to endangering children and Howard pleaded guilty. That is a first degree misdemeanor.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 15.

Howard was hired by the Swanton Police Department in November 2018.
