CMPD to start All Hands On Deck bringing more of DC Metro's police style to Charlotte. The original idea is that of DC Metro Chief Cathy Lanier who in 2007 started putting all DC Metro officers on the streets for 48 hours from 6 AM Friday to 6 AM Sunday.
Metro has used All Hands On Deck to build public confidence, in short all officers hit the streets for a 48 hour show of force.
Works in DC apparently pretty well.
However DC Metro's Police Union sued and convinced a federal arbitrator to rule against Chief Lanier see ruling by a federal arbitrator
Of course CMPD doesn't have a union as such.
