The Beacon Police Benevolent Association says it has lost “all trust, faith and confidence” in the mayor and city council's ability to lead the city and police department right now.
The organization posted an open letter on its Facebook page saying Mayor Lee Kyriacou and the council have failed to correct untrue public accusations of police misconduct.
They say they are particularly concerns that the city council approved former Lt. Bill Cornett as temporary police chief for 90 days as the city seeks a replacement. They say Cornett has not been an active police officer since 2000 and is unqualified for the role.
Mayor Kyriacou responded saying "I am deeply disappointed by the approach of the police union, which has resorted to intimidation and escalation in a highly charged environment – where the community-building approach should be outreach and dialogue.”
