SA investigator resigns

Frank Douglas Cohens, an investigator for the Monroe County State Attorney's Office since Feb. 1, 2012, resigned on Dec. 31, State Attorney Catherine Vogel said Tuesday.

Cohens, 48, was arrested Dec. 18 on suspicion of DUI after police said he backed his SUV into a parked car in the 2500 block of Staples Avenue at 8:30 p.m.

Cohens, a former Key West police officer, will remain on administrative leave until Jan. 31, Vogel said.

Miami-Dade prosecutors will handle the DUI case.


Health care discussed Thursday

City Commissioner Clayton Lopez's monthly District 6 meeting is set for 6 p.m. Thursday at the Douglass Gym, 111 Olivia St.

Guest speaker Herman Koch, a community health educator for Florida Blue, will talk about the Affordable Care Act.

Lopez and police department leaders will also take residents' comments and questions about any issues in Bahama Village.

The monthly community meeting is a part of the Key West Police Department's community policing initiative, aimed at providing an open forum for residents to speak with elected officials and officers.
