When Chief Lenny and his crack Spin Squad concoct a new definition for the word “fail.”
Hey, if Bill Clinton can redefine the word “is,” fair game, right?
They even posted a Press Release letting the public know that “A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation (CFA)” was coming to town on April 19, 2016 and will spend three days examining “all aspects of the North Miami Police Department’s policies and procedures, management, operations, and support services.”
The assessment process was completed on Thursday, April 21, 2016, and guess what?
Of course, that’s not the “official” story, because the truth would just further confirm the complete incompetence of the head of the proverbial rotting fish, the Police Chief himself, Leonard Burgess.
This assessment takes place every three years in order for a police department to retain its certification status.
This is the first time in … ever … that the NMPD has failed the assessment.
This is the first time it’s happened under any Police Chief in the history of the North Miami Police Department.
What does that tell you?
On Friday, I made a public records request asking for “copies of the complete results of this assessment, including the areas which were assessed and the final grade that each assessed area received. Please also provide proof of the agency’s accreditation status.”
I also sent an email to the city manager, with copies to mayor and council, requesting this information.
I have not received an official response to my request yet, but several sources in the police department told me that the spin is already in.
According to the word on the street, Team Lenny sez:
“We didn’t fail. But, since we didn’t pass, we are withdrawing our application and going back to the drawing board.”
That was three days the North Miami Police Department will never get back.
GET THIS GUY OUTTA HERE!
