No confidence vote tabled

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - The Monroe Police Union has tabled a vote of no confidence in Chief Quentin Holmes.

Union members met Wednesday to discuss the results of a departmental survey that showed low morale and little confidence in Holmes among police officers.

The survey's findings, obtained by a public records request from, showed 66 percent of officers did not have confidence in top management and 87 percent said morale was "much lower" than in previous years.

Union President Michael Calloway says the union is delaying the call for Holmes' ouster after Holmes and Mayor Jamie Mayo promised change.

Holmes instituted a controversial switch from a 10-hour shift to a 12-hour shift. Calloway says it left less overlap of officers during peak crime hours and a more stressed workforce.
