The NCPBA Announces Lawsuit Against the North Carolina Department of Public Safety on Behalf of Members

 

On June 25, 2018, the NCPBA held a press conference in Raleigh, NC to announce the filing of a lawsuit on behalf of our members against the Department of Public Safety. This suit has been filed due to what we believe to be a deliberate and pervasive scheme by DPS administrators to deny benefits to our members that were supported and passed into law by state legislators.

 
According to North Carolina PBA Executive Director John Midgette, “The actions alleged here exemplify a systematic practice and attitude by senior leaders that has plagued the Department of Corrections for many decades.”
 
The same shameful treatment that has denied our members lawful treatment and benefits exemplifies a culture of corruption that promulgates a system of workplace malfeasance, severe officer injury and even death.
 
“Our hope is that our effort here will begin a process of accountability, respect and support that has been denied to our correctional officers for far too many years,” said Midgette.

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.
