My family moved to Leland five months ago and we are dismayed by the allegations and accusations regarding the police department. We want to be proud of our little town, but haven't had particulary great experiences with the PD on a couple of occasions when reporting thefts from our home. Honestly, we don't know what to think, but are already weary of hearing the "it's a personnel issue" excuse. I understand there is a state law of some sort regarding personnel matters, but I doubt it was intended to be used so cavalierly as a means to apparently dodge responsibility for answering legitimate questions and taking care of problems. As a former deputy, my opinion is that if a situation stinks, there is usually something rotten around.
