Iowa Law Enforcement Academy Director under fire

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Director of the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy is facing criticism Monday from police chiefs, sheriffs, and deputies.

Director Penny Westfall faces questions surrounding her leadership and management style, including allegations she's used an uncertified taser instructor.

Two basic training classes have filed complaints against her, alleging that she was late to classes she taught.

A spokesman for Governor Chet Culver says the Governor is aware of the complaints. Westfall says she is also looking into the complaints and is willing to work with anyone with complaints.
