TRAVERSE CITY - A supervisor raised concerns about the job performance and work habits of a Grand Traverse County Sheriff's detective recently charged with domestic assault.

Sheriff's Capt. David Meachum in March penned a six-page memo to Sheriff Scott Fewins outlining problems with Justin Revnell's performance as a school liaison officer at Traverse City West Junior High. Fewins is Revnell's uncle.

"This memo is rather lengthy," wrote Meachum. "However, the performance issues need to be documented to show that corrective behavior needs to occur."

Revnell, 26, is charged with misdemeanor domestic assault after his ex-girlfriend told police he put her in a "headlock" before knocking her feet out from underneath her. He also allegedly bent her arm behind her back and pushed her face down into the floor.

Revnell is suspended without pay and is scheduled for trial in district court in four to six weeks, court officials said. Meachum wrote last year that he received complaints from principals about Revnell's "visibility" and interaction with students at the school, and complaints that Revnell at times appeared less than "10 percent of the week" in early 2004.

If Revnell regains his job, school officials want to be consulted before he returns as a liaison officer, said Jayne Mohr, assistant superintendent with Traverse City Area Public Schools.

Meachum also raised concern about Revnell's time management and paperwork, finding that he failed to file daily activity reports 29 times in January and February.

According to Meachum's report, Revnell also failed to adequately investigate a criminal sexual conduct incident.

Revnell's personnel file shows that during his five years as a deputy he received one commendation and two positive citizen contact letters, but also was "counseled" three times, including once for not showing up for an assigned overtime shift.

In a performance evaluation in May, Meachum reported that although improvement had been made since March, including better reviews from school principals, Revnell still needed improvement in handling "mundane, everyday cases."
