A Grand Rapids police officer who was facing possible termination for his involvement in a former prosecutor’s alcohol-related crash will keep his job.
The City of Grand Rapids reached an agreement with the Grand Rapids Police Officers Association on Friday to suspend Officer Adam Ickes for 30 days without pay.
Ickes accepted the punishment and took responsibility for his role in the Nov. 19 crash involving former Kent County Assistant Prosecutor Joshua Kuiper, according to a press release from the city.
Ickes, Sgt. Thomas Warwick and Lt. Matthew Janiskee were suspended without pay on Jan. 27, about two months after the crash on Union Avenue SE. It’s unclear if that will count towards the 30-day suspension agreed upon on Friday.
Termination hearings for Warwick and Janiskee are pending. None of the officers will face criminal charges.
