From the Charlotte Observer:
Republican Andrew Murray, a candidate for Mecklenburg County district attorney, and Democratic Sheriff Chipp Bailey were among those winning the endorsement Tuesday of the Fraternal Order of Police.
FOP President Todd Walther said members were more familiar with Murray, who has practiced law in Mecklenburg courts for nearly two decades.
“We want somebody in there we can trust and we feel knows us better,” Walther said. “We feel Andrew Murray … will at least give us a fair say.”
In other CMPD news:
The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have moved their motorcycle unit into the SouthPark area this week, in an effort to increase law enforcement visibility in the community.
The unit consists of several officers on motorcycles, working mostly on traffic patrols.
Props to the guys who ride in the motorcycle unit they look sharp always have always will.
BTW I looked everywhere for a good photo of CMPD's motorcycle unit and zilch, nothing nada! Sorry!
