LELAND, NC (WWAY) — After a week of revelations about Leland Police, the department got a visit today from state regulators.

WWAY was the only news outlet there this morning when a member of the North Carolina Justice Education and Training Standards Commission arrived at the Leland Police Department. The representative told us he was there on “routine business.”

The commission investigates police departments across the state and their training exercises.

The visit comes the week after former officer Sherry Lewis settled a harassment claim with the Town of Leland. Lewis says another officer shot her 12 times in the crotch with simulation ammunition during a training exercise back in March.
