An Ocean Shores police officer has been charged with fourth-degree assault involving his 17-year-old daughter. The teenager says her father, 50-year-old Jerry Elmore of Aberdeen, hit her with a belt at least five times in an argument over a telephone call on Nov. 18. Elmore was arrested Nov. 21 after she told school counselors her father had caused the bruises on her arms and legs. According to a police report, he has been placed on paid administrative leave and his daughter has moved into a friend's house. He is barred from having contact with her and from possessing firearms. Elmore has been a police officer for nine years. He has not entered a plea to the charge. A hearing is scheduled Dec. 11 in Municipal Court.

  1. the state needs to get out of raising kids and let the parents do it. i dont think he hit her because he liked to or wanted to,but maybe because she wouldnt mind. yeah theres abuse out there, but kids can be tiring they need to learn, its all part of the process of growing up.

    Kids will always try to 'push the limits' but that does not give the right for a police officer who is taller and out weighs his daughter to beat her with a belt. Then for the parents to still to this day pronounce that they did nothing wrong. But then they have told SO many different stories of how their daughter got the bruises on herself. 1. She is clumsey. 2. Her boyfriend did it. 3. She tripped going down some bleacher stairs while they all were in San Diego. 4. She did it to herself in her dance class. 5. The mother 'just swatted' her daughter. 6. The parents didn't do anything, the bruises were old ones and don't know how they got there. 7. Their daughter has had mental problems for years.
    No child deserves to be beatten! Especially by the people who then turn around and throw their child under the bus just to save themselves.
    Being beatten is NOT all part of the process of growing up!
