    Fayetteville has significant challenges for a police chief. I wish Harold Medlock the best of luck in his new role.

  • Just Plain Common Sense Jan 9, 2013

    Needs to start with focusing on the unsolved rapes and murders, and panhandlers/beggers walkng not noy the streets nowm, but our neighborhoods and if I see them others do, too.

    Well, he has his work cut out for him, but at.east we have a NC resident in NC. Wish him well.

    He has a mess to clean up there and hope he has some plans and the backing to make a difference. Seems like everyday something bad is happening there.
    Good luck to him in his new position.

    He stated in an interview he wants to stop people from shooting each other. Well, the lawmakers can start upholding the law and hand out a "smackdown" to those gun offenders.

    What an armpit that town is. He best be good, because Fayetteville is a death zone. He needs to plow through the entire area with garbage trucks and remove the garbage and their guns.

    That would leave about 10% of the current population left to rebuild and renew.

    Outstanding. Now, if you can only keep the meddlers on the city council out of police business.

  • Glass Half Full Jan 9, 2013

    Glad but surprised he got the job.

    "An expert is anyone from out of town."

    Nope. In this case the guy would be an "expert" if he were from Fayetteville.

    An expert is anyone from out of town.

    Hard to promote from within ranks due to having to turn around and tell those you have been doing the same thing with over and over to start doing it a different way.

  • Relic Jan 9, 2013

    Congratulations, Harold! Fayetteville you have no idea what this man has done in his career in Charlotte/Mecklinburg. He is a nationally recognized expert on providing officers with the technology and information needed to respond to calls effectively and get and send good information.

    Good luck, you will need it with that city board.
