"On December 20th, 2019, Porum Police Department was informed that one of our Officers, Assistant Police Chief David Kash, was under investigation for child sexual abuse. Before that day was over, he had turned over his badge to an Agent for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. We are continuing to fully cooperate with the OSBI during their investigation. The city will be taking immediate action to formally terminate his employment. To say that we as a department are shocked, dismayed and saddened by these allegations is an understatement. The safety of all members of our town and community will remain our top priority. Further, our thoughts and prayers are with all victims of any crime during this holiday season. Until and unless the city council deems necessary, no further statements will be made regarding this matter.”
