    Why waste all the money, when you have a good Chief working in th e position. If she was not good enough for the job why was she placed there? Just the usual poor leadership in Fayetteville.

    Well its hard to understand but she is not the "Cheif of Police" she is the "Interum Cheif of Police" The way it works, which is crazy if you ask me, is they have to advertise the job in the paper and any other means for applications. It is like that for any city or county job unless it is posted on the city or counties website as a continuously highering possition like Patrol Officer or Deputy or Telecommunicator. She has to apply for the job just like all the rest that want the Cheif's possition. I see that she has been doing a good job for the city and the department even though I dont live in Fayetteville I do hope that she gets the job! I wish her all the best of luck! I hope that this sheds some light on your questions and concerns about it. Sad to say but it is true!
