THE RANT: Why is the Leland Town Manager continuing to allow Chief Jayne to force officers to take lie detector tests?
LELAND, NC (WWAY’S ‘THE RANT’) — We got word again this morning that Leland Police Chief Tim Jayne is continuing to force his officers to take lie detector tests. We’re told the paranoid chief is trying to find “leakers” on the force, discover what they’re telling investigators, anything that will help him keep what’s going on inside his department out of the media.
New Town Manager David Hollis says no one is being “forced” to take these lie detector tests. (I’m sure these officers are getting a choice – take the test, or pack your box, it’s totally up to you.)
Mr. Hollis, what kind of workplace makes people take lie detector tests? What kind of town allows these types of conditions to exist? Are you BEGGING for a multitude of hostile work environment lawsuits? Is the town oblivious that it’s not only under media scrutiny for all of North Carolina to see, it’s also on the radar of both state and federal investigators?
Mr. Hollis, all of Leland and the Cape Fear region want to know, who’s running your town, you or Chief Jayne? Can you not get control of your police chief?
Chief Jayne continuously lobs criticism at this television station saying we’re on a witch hunt, out to get him and the entire town of Leland. It appears he’s got his own going against his own people.
