FOP calls for presidents resignation
Fraternal Order of Police representatives are calling on their president to resign.
Union leaders took the unusual step of calling a news conference tonight asking their boss to step down and apologize for his actions.
This comes after FOP president Mike Shields made explosive allegations that the last two police contracts dictated by an independent arbitrator were fixed in favor of the city, and that the recent sergeants contract may have been rigged.
In a letter to the city’s inspector general, Shields accuses union rivals of making backroom deals.
The group says if Shields refuses to resign, their board will take action against him.
