At the end of May The O’Zone reported that the Southbridge Police union had taken what was initially termed a vote of “no confidence” in Police Chief Daniel Charette.
After a month and a half of back and forth with their attorneys, the union is about to release what is being termed a “letter of concern”.
The letter is set to be issued to the town manager, the town council and local press outlets.
Much of the delay revolved around the terminology to be used in criticizing the Chief’s management of the department. This resulted from the fact that while the vote was overwhelmingly in favor of the motion to speak out against him, it was not unanimous.
It will be interesting to see how the town administration responds to this indication of dissatisfaction in the ranks of the department at all levels.
