Why wasn't the Police Officer who was a member of the Riverside Club where these stolen signs were placed fired?

Channel 12 has a video on you tube and it says not enough evidence for charges on officer.

I saw the Channel 12 video, which said the E.P. police officer is the one who told the Riverside Sportsman Association President not to worry about exit signs, he would take care of it. Obviously, the policeman, a law enforcement officer, gave a directive to the carpenter that they needed signs for their club. Two city employees, one with more power than the other. Why hasn't the policeman been fired or at least suspended? It seems like the carpenter used poor judgment, and doesn't benefit financially at all. The policeman knew what he was asking, and should not get away without being punished for influencing or directing someone to commit a crime just to make himself look like he's in control and can provide what his club needs.
