Most of you are correct in your assessment of the Leland Police. The problem with the department is that from the chief down the Sergeant Level you have the problem with the "good ole boys network." Its a cushy job to work in Leland and the pay isn't bad. I do realize these fine men could make more money in the private sector but they are choosing to do what they want to do.
The young officers are decent guys who if they utilize their skills can one day be productive members of the law enforcement community. The problem, the longer they stay in Leland, the harder it is to get out with any sort of credibility. The NHSO and the WPD are full of young officers that have gone on to bigger and brighter careers. Several are in Federal Law Enforcement. Several are even lawyers here in Wilmington.
Name one from Leland who has done anything to advance their career once leaving the department? Leland prides itself on its bully tactics. If you are in their cross hairs, you stay in their cross hairs. They will use whatever they have against you, including their service weapons.
For instance, review the link attached. This is a Sergeant in the Leland Police Department. He had numerous complaints when he worked in Clinton. Yet was hired as a Sergeant(in a leadership role) in Leland.
"Plum Crazy" I guess
