PBA requests that Governor appoint candidate with broad based experience for interim Deputy Director position

North Carolina Division President Randy Byrd recently wrote a letter to Governor Cooper regarding the interim Deputy Director position with the NC Prison System. Read the letter below: 
 
Dear Governor Cooper,
 
We are writing to you concerning your forthcoming decision to name an interim Director to replace Deputy Secretary W. David Guice.
 
As the largest association of law enforcement officers in our state, the North Carolina Police Benevolent Association also has thousands of correctional officer members to include some of those recently injured and killed in the line of duty.
 
Our members believe it is critically important to name a director with a strong background in our Corrections system and a working knowledge of day to day operations and officer responsibilities.
 
We respectfully recommend that such a person have extensive experience in policy and employee development and implementation, strategic planning, and new technology.  They should have an effective history of working in a bipartisan manner with both the legislative and executive branches of government.
 
We appreciate your consideration in this matter.
 
Randy Byrd
North Carolina Division President

Whistleblower Protection Legislation Passes the House

May 7, 2019

The NCPBA was proud to be on hand today as HB 348 passed the House by a 115-1 vote. HB 348 as originally filed by Rep. Holly Grange, Rep. Debra Conrad, Representative Bobby Hanig, and Rep. Billy Richardson offered protections from retaliation for municipal police officers who report corruption. The bill passed through the Judiciary Committee and was later given a referral to the Rules Committee by Rep. Lewis after Rep. Faircloth and Rep. Allen McNeill offered a PCS (Proposed Committee Substitute) that would protect all municipal employees. The PBA wants to thank all of these legislators for their efforts with this critical piece of legislation.
