Council Discusses Personnel, Police Matters

Meridian, Miss.
The Meridian City Council spent an hour of its work session Thursday in executive session with Mayor Percy Bland and Police Chief James Lee.

Council members said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss personnel matters, but would not elaborate beyond that.

Some council members expressed concern earlier this week about turnover at the police department, including the firing of the chief of detectives, department spokesman, and police union president, Dean Harper.
