Cedar Posts has obtained a copy of Chief Monroe's hastily written February 19 memo to members of City Council that tries to answer objections to the new CMPD "Standard Operating Procedures" used to throttle the CMPD Reserves.
Seems the Mayor and Council members have been getting an earful regarding Chief Monroe lately.
We've posted the entire undated and unsigned manifesto "Changes in Police Reserves Policies and Procedures" elsewhere here at Cedar Posts, but it reads like a Hugo Chavez version of "Mein Kampf".
That's Chavez on the right
Reading the "memo" you'll quickly notice it's all about power, envy and a struggle to gain total control over the decades old group of volunteers. The anger is palable as is the targeting of the Reserve Commander who is visablity singled out.
It's ironic is that Major Vicki Foster was asked by Chief Monroe to provide a review of the Reserve's "activities" as Foster who is often Chief Monroe's primary spokesperson is connected to a private security firm known as "MVP Protective Services" that effectively competes with CMPD officers both full time and reserve for secondary job opportunities.
MVP is promoted in the Richmond Virginia and DC Metro area market but is a North Carolina Corporation with Major Foster as a partner/member.
You can read more about Major Foster's MVP Protective Services, LLC at the North Carolina Secretary of State Office.
It is apparently unlawful or against CMPD policy for North Carolina officers to seek secondary employment out of state.
In the memo, Chief Monroe cites liability, safety and lack of training among a massive laundry list of issues with the decades old organization. Keep in mind the majority of the CMPD Reserves have retired from the CMPD with a collective 1,092 YEARS of experience.
