McNamara Leaving Raleigh Police Department After 5 Months On Job

Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — The Raleigh Police Department is losing one of its newest weapons against crime.

After five months on the force, Maj. James McNamara will be leaving his post.

Police Chief Jane Perlov said she recruited and hired McNamara, a former colleague and a 21-year veteran of the NYPD, because of his unique experience in crime data analysis.

McNamara was assigned to integrate a program which uses computerized crime statistics.

He said he is leaving because his family is unwilling to move to Raleigh.

There is no word on a replacement.
