Former Police Officer Sues City for Age Discrimination

Indio, CA

Former police officer, Henricus “Henk” Peeters

Henricus “Henk’’ Peeters, a former police officer with the City of Indio, has filed suit against the City of Indio for age discrimination. Peeters, who served as a commander with the city’s police department for more than 22 years, alleged in a lawsuit that, when the department’s former police chief, Richard Twiss, retired last year, he and another commander in the department, Johnny Romero (also a plaintiff in the suit), were both qualified to succeed him. 

The lawsuit alleges that after Twiss submitted the names of both men for consideration, he was told by the city’s former mayor, Glenn Miller, not to consider either men because he purportedly believed they were too old, and that the Indio City Council did not want either man in the position, because Miller did not believe the city council could control them. 

Peeters transitioned to the Palm Springs Police Department last October, where he currently serves as captain.
