Camp Dodge lifts bar against fired academy worker

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A former Iowa Law Enforcement Academy instructor was barred from Camp Dodge after academy officials claimed she was an armed threat, but the Iowa National Guard lifted the restriction after finding no evidence to support the claim.

A December 2012 memo warned Camp Dodge security that Nancy Brady had threatened employees and “should be considered armed when approached.” Brady says she was outraged to learn of the ban, insisting she’s never owned a gun and wasn’t a threat.

The National Guard rescinded the ban June 18. Lt. Col. Mike Kuehn says academy officials offered no justification to continue keeping Brady off the base, where the academy is housed.

The academy’s treatment of Brady has come under scrutiny. She claims she was fired after blowing the whistle on inappropriate behavior.
