Brothers & Sisters,
We thank CMPD Chief Jennings for his stance concerning the #AbolishThePolice course offered by Davidson College.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #9 agrees the course’s name is inflammatory on the surface and may contribute to divisiveness in our community. We also acknowledge that the law enforcement community should remain engaged in civic dialogue to help identify practical solutions towards police reform where needed, while keeping our communities safe.
We have reached out to Davidson College and offered to work with them in offering students a well-rounded perspective and facilitating constructive conversations around policing. While the specific subject matter taught in the course remains unknown, the College has been receptive about including local law enforcement officers’ point of view. We remain committed to being part of the solution as it relates to the issues our community deems important.
