The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association meets with elected officials in Raleigh regarding the proposed Fayetteville Citizens Review Board

 
The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association met with elected officials in Raleigh Monday to make suggestions regarding the proposed Fayetteville Citizens Review Board.  Representative Rick Glazier proposed a series of amendments which the NCPBA felt would help protect the privacy of Fayetteville police officers and ensure fair treatment and transparency in the Citizen Review Board procedure.  We are disappointed that these amendments were not acceptable to the City of Fayetteville and hope that in the future, both parties can work better together to make Fayetteville a safer place to live.  The North Carolina Police Benevolent Association would like to thank Rep. Rick Glazier, Rep. Elmer Floyd and the entire Cumberland County legislative delegation who obviously understood the need for our association and the City of Fayetteville to work together in the creation and implementation of a Fayetteville Citizen Review Board.
 
According to NCPBA Division President Randy Byrd, "While we were very grateful to the Legislative Delegation in amending the bill so the Citizen Review Board could move forward, we are extremely disappointed that the Fayetteville Mayor was willing to kill the city's own legislation to establish a board that many citizens wanted just to keep our members from having input in such an important initiative."
