Monroe Police Union sets no confidence vote

Posted: Updated:
The Monroe Police Union is moving forward with a vote of no confidence in Chief Quentin Holmes.

The News-Star reports the union voted in a meeting Monday to hold a ballot vote between Monday and Aug. 4 so a true depiction of the union members' feelings about the chief will be represented.

Union President Michael Calloway said the department's problems with Holmes had been growing for three years. He said many in the union feel Holmes has made little improvement since the results of a departmental survey in May showed low morale and a lack of confidence in the chief.

Holmes said he thought he and the union had been working well through the process and urged them to be patient.
