UPDATE: Ex-Dover police officer closer to beginning duties as law enforcement with Md. town

Cpl. Thomas Webster submits resignation to Dover PD

On Friday, officials release details on when a former police officer is expected to begin duties as an officer with a Maryland town, after he was acquitted of a 2013 assault on a man in Delaware.

Officials with the Town of Greensboro, MD, tell 47ABC that Thomas Webster IV is currently in Comparative Compliance training which is required to certify him as a police officer in the State of Maryland. Town Manager Jeannette DeLude says Webster, a former Dover police officer, is not performing duties of a Greensboro police officer, and he will not be able to due so until he completes the training and is certified by the state.

In 2014, the former Dover police officer was found not guilty of second degree assault against Lateef Dickerson, although dashcam footage shows Dickerson being kicked in the jaw while being taken into custody back in 2013. Webster voluntarily resigned from his role with the Dover Police Department  in February 2016.

Greensboro officials say Webster is expected to complete his training sometime in April.
