How long does the [COP] Chief of Police, get to remain in office? Why do the tax payers not get to choose who they want as Chief of Police? Who does he report to or does he have to?
It is of my opinion that when a man is placed in an office, where he's his own boss, He answers to no one,Thinks the law doesn't apply to him, and takes the word of anyone, over his officers, it is the making of a hugh problem. If that man is rude, or down rigt smart ass to some of the citizens of this county and shows no respect, there's a problem. When a Chief of Police is over heard saying, he would do whatever he wanted to do because of who he is or this same man is heard making racial remarks of white washing people. Don't you think it is time for him to have to answer to someone? What do you think about having a poll to see how many agree or disagree?

I agree with what you are saying, but why would the citizens of the city of Selmer care. they all know that if they get a ticket, break the law, show disrespect to officers, that all they have to do is go whine to the chief. Chief Burks would sell one of his officers down the river for the least of things. He's priority is to throw his authority around to make everybody thing he will take care of everything. I agree with you that there should be a senior official that he would have to answer to. But, is there anyone in Selmer that gives a damn? It doesn't seem like it or some changes would be made.

The chief is never going to make people happy. Its a position that bridges the public and his officers together. If an officer is doing something wrong, its the chief's job to PROVE it, not just go be hearsay.

A Chief of Police does what he has to do in a job that is impossible to please everybody all the time. Neal if you read this.......I appreciate you very much!!!

don't have a clue who SEB is, but I can say this, the welfare of your people is important because they are more willing to get the job done.

Fairness is the more important because as long as employees are treated fair, then there is little reason to complain.

When you show favoritism over one officer to the next, then you have a real problem.

YES IT DOES HAPPEN, almost daily.

Has anyone heard about the RUN AWAY POLICE CAR that belongs to the SELMER POLICE DEPT.? Well it appears one of the officers went home, went to bed, and the next thing he knew, his patrol car just drove off by it's self. And that's not the good part. This car that operates without a driver, ran head first into a tree. But, there's a problem with that story, the car was found in REVERSE. Well Chief Burks, exactly what kind of a police officer, do you turn a loose in the City Police Cars? This might be one that you would need to check out; don't you think? Wonder why everyone is trying to keep this so quite? Well, Chief Burks, if your going to believe or except this explanation, there is something very wrong in your dept. I don't know whether the problem lies with your or the officer.

Why is it that Chief Burks will cover up certain incidence for selected officers, pat them on the head and tell them everything will be alright?[ example: one officer tells him someone stole his patrol car and wrecked it while he slept] and Burks actually bought that story. It looks like little b----h------- got away with wrecking another car. It is shameful for Chief Burks to hide the behaviors of an officer that way, when everyone knows the truth. Little b----, needs to get his anger under control, if he is going to be behind the wheel of a City Police Car. It's disgraceful that someone can flash their badge and it means, " I"M THE CHIEF OF POLICE, I CAN DO WHAT I DAMN WELL PLEASE", and that goes for my little ass kissers too. The rest of the officers gets the hell rode out of them and they never hear the words, " JOB WELL DONE MEN".
Burks, you need to supply your ass kissers with chapstick, so that they are not as obvious!!!!!

I know there are some good officers at the SPD. that work hard to do their job. Those are the officers that BURKS, never recognize.
Thank You to all the good officers that are hard working men at SPD. It's a shame you don't have better leadership,within the dept. than you have..........and by the way, stay out of Chief Burks, chapstick basket. That is reserved for a selected few!!!!!!!!!!

Your comment regarding the chapstick would be quite amusing if it weren't so true. I am so glad to know that I'm not the only person, that recognize the fact, that BURKS, needs to be put out of office.

Bab and Seb, if he is such an a--hole, and have done so many officers wrong why dont you go to the board meetings and protest against him. I think the problem, lies deeper with in the department itself. Like, their Asst. Cheif, I heard as soon as Chief Burks retires, they are going to make him the cheif and bring the old drug task force officer, who went to Jackson back. The way I see it, keep who they have in place. If hes the worst evil, I would rather have him then their Asst. Chief. I am not going to slander their names, you may but you should have a little more tac, than that. He must have done you wrong, and yes I can see what you mean by the ass kissing, maybe their needs to be a coordinated effort between TBI and the district attorney's office's, to investigate the offical misconduct within the departments officers. If you now such detail then you should have first hand knowledge, go ahead and tell the approiate authorities and let them handel the situation at hand. Thats the only way to truly solve the dilema at hand. Slandering a mans name all over this site doesnt show anything but poor tac, on your part sir. I am not opposing to your discussion merely advising you that anger is not going to get anything finished, but merely, talking to the right people may help you further your discussions. You can write independent articles to your local newspaper and express the ideas and poor leadership within the Selmer Police Department, with out slandering the Cheif's name over and over and still have the same affect.

Ask him about the time he covered for an officer that was having an affair with one of the nurses at the hospital. That one actually got caught coming out of a hotel room while on duty!!!

REALLY? What I hear is that nobody can stand lil B---- H-------. I hear all he is, is a little tattle tail. I think this makes his third wreck in a year or so. From the rumors he likes to drink. No thats not a rumor, that is true or atleast thats what it says on HIS face book page. Yeah thats the kind of POLICE OFFICER I want protecting me. One that brags of being a DRUNK. How old is this BOY?? Yeah I think if Neal is going to have this kind of Officer representing the city's Police Dept. then yeah it's time for a new Chief. And I agree with seb. When good police officers get nothing but their ass chewed on for doing his/her job , and the ass kissers get what ever the ass kissers want, then thats plain and simple MISMANAGEMENT! And I know when he or his daddy pull over my mother or grandmother and talk to her the way they have been known to do, then somebody is going to have an ass whipping coming!!!!

It doesn't matter who the Police Chief is!! Whoever the Chief is someone is going to have negativity against them. HELLO- it's called politics which is a crock. If you people didn't do anything wrong, you wouldn't have a problem nor anything to gripe, complain and point fingers at. Now would YA?????????? Chief Burks is an awesome man and he has put up with more crap in his years that one could only imagine. AWESOME JOB Chief -Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!

i agree with short and sassy and doodlebug. neal burks DOES have someone he has to answer to and it is the fine MAYOR david robinson and the board of aldermen. most of you don't have a clue nor do you know shit about what you are saying. everyone is pissed at the chief because of this robo cop thing that he, by the way, did not have anything to do with. nobody kisses his ass nor does he kiss anyone's ass so chapstick stock will not go up because of increased sales and the officers that do not follow general orders and procedures are dealt with according to city policy which is set forth by the mayor and aldermen. another thing selmer can't get any good police officers because their pay is crap! the parks and recreation director makes 2 x's what an officer does and she doesn't do shit. she does not put her life on the line everyday. so if you gotta bitch about something you need to look further into her salary and her job. as for officers writing tickets for speeding, they wouldn't need robo cop if people stopped calling in stupid stuff that takes them away from their job of patroling. it's hard to set up radar when someone calls the dispatchers and says a stray dog is in their yard, there's a suspicious car going down the road, someone they don't know is walking down the road, etc. this is all so stupid and can be handled by yourself. the officers have other duties also. working wrecks, transporting dui's and drug dealers (which by the way has to go out to the er for blood test)to jail, escorting funerals, school traffic, breaking up domestic fights,looking for runaway's, tons of paper work that goes with all of these calls, dealing with the state over vehicles that have been impounded.. i could go on and on but i think i have made my point. the chief does not cover up anything that goes on in the dept it is all public record

Drunk!!! I second that. Funny how his patrol car comes up wrecked, and I see him the next couple of days rolling around in a new car! Has he been at the Police Department long? Or is he one of N B's ass kisser's? What about the other Officer's that have been there longer? Are they getting new car's? Ohhhhhh wait I see....all you have to do to be a good ol boy cop is kiss the chief's ass....talk to good citizen's like they are stupid....and run around Selmer wrecking cars. If I were the Chief, this KID WOULD NOT BE A POLICE OFFICER in my department. And if "Great job" NB lets it go on then he needs to be OUT!!!!Thats not a good Chief.
