Concerned citizen went on a police ride along, Saturday with the Coquille Police Department. Also, Cory Courtright has the Leah Freeman website back up and running, be sure and visit it.

The Coquille Valley Sentinel reports that the traffic violation complaints against CPD have been reviewed by ‘staff’ and they have been completely exonerated of any wrongdoing. The many other non-traffic related complaints appear to remain unvisited by ‘staff’ and are thus still unanswered.

An email from a concerned citizen advised me that he went to City Hall and inquired as to who ‘staff’ were and was advised ‘staff’ was City Manager O’Connor and Chief Reaves. Perhaps this is appropriate for traffic violations but an impartial investigation from a citizen review board would be sensible for the more serious allegations.
