Faced with a near-record homicide tally, fewer officers on the streets and cutbacks in overtime, many Prince George's County police officers say they have lost confidence in their Chief Melvin High's ability to take a bite out of crime.
Thursday's meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police will determine whether those issues solidify in a vote of no confidence later this year.
'This chief has lost the support of his commanders and the rank and file,' FOP President Percy Alston told The Examiner. 'Everyone from the colonels all the way down to rookies just out on the street have clearly lost confidence in this chief.'"
