Why is everyone getting fired from the LPD and Sheriffs Department of Lenoir?

I saw last nite a police car parked besides a truck behind the bushes at the bernhardt office. I wonder what a cop does parked with somebody else hidding in the dark? Cheating on the wife with a woman or........ another guy ! It seems like somebody needs to put more attention on what our cops are doing when they should be doing the job they are getting pay for.

LPD has always had a very high turnover rate and the biggest reason for that is their pay, one of the lowest anywhere around. Most rookie officers come there and get the required two years experience to move on to a real paying department. This creates a domino effect where LPD's revolving door forces them to hire anyone they can resulting in sub par officers that end up getting fired and the cycle repeats. The ranking members have been there a long time and its mostly a good ole boys club, the brass gets a decent wage and the Patrolmen make less than someone working at McDonalds.

CCSO has only recently found themselves in this boat. Once upon a time most of the deputies had been there for years and many longer than 20 years. When Jones was placed in as Sheriff then elected CCSO found itself facing LPDs problems, ironically Jones came from LPD and so came the same problems. Funny thing with CCSO is the pay is on par and decent but the backroom politics practiced by Jones and his cronies is very reminiscent of how the city does things. This creates an atmosphere of distrust and backstabbing to get ahead, low moral plagues the department.

LPD's reasons are pretty straight forward but the Sheriffs Office is a little more complicated although similar in many ways. CCSO and their problems are directly related to LPD by way of Sheriff Jones. CCSO has lost so many officers in the past three years to politics and scandals that most of the senior officers there now have less than three years experience and you can easily see how that will work out. You have shift commanders with less than 5 years in, Sgt's and Cpl's some less than a year experience. Its a mess.
change is good

Looks like people that complain theres no work.What's the problem? The people to lazy to work and complain to get a hand out.The way I look at it, if you make five dollars that day.Its better than setting on your a$$ and no dollars that day.But thats what many choose to do.Sat on their a$$e$ and beg for a hand out.Won't be long the cons will be in the parking lots begging.I follow one begger to his house one time and he lived in a nice house.Had a trans am and a jacked up four by four.It pays to beg.Saw on the news one time you can make a hundred grand a year begging.The people are the reason we have beggers and cons on our streets.Stop supporting lazy a$$e$.
