CHATTANOOGA — Chattanooga Police Department employees are referred to assistance services before they are terminated for performance or behavior-related problems, according to department policy.

"We try to salvage our people rather than sacrifice them, if that's possible," said Lon Eilders, the department's policy and accreditation manager. "It's hard to set any hard and fast line in the sand and say, all right, beyond this point, you're fired — beyond criminal conduct."
