The Miami Herald reported this morning in North Bay Village police chief Robert Daniels fired, that Village Manager Frank Rollason ditched the Police Chief because he wasn’t doing his job.
Rollason told the Herald, “I have been observing the police department for the year and a half that I have been here and I just feel the direction needs to change, [such as] the emphasis on community response.”
Mr. Rollason made his decision after “residents of the Kennedy House, a condominium at 1865 79th St. Causeway, complained to the commission that the police department was ineffectively handling reported burglaries at the condo and that the investigations were unnecessarily prolonged.” He made it clear, however, that “the dismissal did not stem from a specific event, but rather an overall performance review of the department.”
Oddly, it doesn’t even appear that NBV has a problem cop, such as NMPD Officer Jodlyn Antoine.
The North Bay Village Manager simply decided the Chief wasn’t working out and showed him the door.
North Miami City Manager Aleem Ghany has been getting tons of complaints from residents (and this blogger) about Police Chief Leonard Burgess. Maybe Aleem can take a cue from his North Bay Village counterpart and take care of business already.
The best part of the Herald article was the final quote by Village Manager Frank Rollason, who said, “I did not poll the commissioners. It was strictly my decision.“
Here ya go, Aleem! A whole pile of easy!
