THE FOLLOWING IS A STARNEWS EDITORIAL THAT RAN IN TUESDAY MORNING’S PAPER:
The Leland Police Department is under suspicion, and whether or not that suspicion is justified, town officials owe it to residents and the officers to complete an ongoing investigation as soon as possible. And when it’s completed, the results – for better or for worse – should be made public.
Assorted complaints, including a former female officer’s discrimination allegation, beg for a quick and open examination of what may or may not be wrong with the police department.
Complaints go all the way to the top to Chief Timothy Jayne.
