More officers file grievances over Raleigh police evaluation program
Posted July 13, 2012
Raleigh, N.C. — One hundred more Raleigh police officers filed grievances with the city Friday over a new employee performance evaluation that the city's police chief has put into place.
Teamsters Local 391 says the Priority Performance Measure system is a "quasi-quota system" that judges police officers on the quantity of work they do and not the quality.
Last week, more than 100 officers filed similar grievances with the city.
Raleigh Police Chief Harry Dolan says the goal of the system has nothing to do with quotas but to accurately measure officers' work, especially as it relates to community policing and officers interacting with the public.
The new program was implemented July 1.
