SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — A Savannah Police Department (SPD) officer was arrested on Monday in connection to a domestic dispute.

Police charged Keith Roland, 23, with aggravated assault and terroristic threats and acts. Roland was fired Monday evening.

SPD was told about the domestic dispute on Sept. 8 and that it happened in the Chatham County Police Department’s jurisdiction. 

SPD said he had been an officer since March 2020 and was assigned to the Central Precinct.

“The conduct uncovered in this investigation aligns with neither SPD’s values nor its ethical standard,” SPD spokesperson Bianca Johnson said in a press release. “Consequently, the determination was made to end Roland’s employment with the department.
