ONLY ON 3: Training and Standards Commission will visit Leland PD

Friday, September 16th, 2011

LELAND, NC (WWAY) — We’ve learned through independent sources that the North Carolina Justice Education Training and Standards Commission is scheduled to visit the Leland Police Department next week.

Training and Standards investigates police departments across the state and their training exercises.

Last night the Town of Leland settled out of court with former Police Officer Sherry Lewis. Lewis says another officer shot her 12 times in the groin with simulation ammunition during a training exercise back in March. She filed a harassment claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Her case went into arbitration and was finalized last night at the town council meeting.

Town leaders voted to accept the terms of the Lewis’s arbitration and have the town’s insuarance provider pay Lewis more than $18,000 and her legal fees of more than $6,000. Both sides also agreed to no admission of fault or liability and Lewis agreed to resign her position.

Even with that payout, Town Manager Bill Farris told us after the meeting that he didn’t know anything about the shooting.
