To the Editor:
It is well-known that systems are healthier and work better when there is the opportunity for feedback.
The Oak Ridge City Charter provides for a Personnel Advisory Board for both city employees and school employees.
Missing, however, is a board for the members of our Police Department.
Questions about the high turnover in law enforcement in Oak Ridge would seem to indicate that the city needs to re-visit the question of a review board for law enforcement.
It is fine to have a wise and judicious city manager, but there needs to be a broader approach to dealing with questions that arise about law enforcement, whoever is the city manager.
