BOLTON, NC (WECT) - Bolton's Police Chief Edward Gillim was the only local chief attending Monday's press conference with North Carolina's Attorney General Roy Cooper in Raleigh.
Cooper and many in law enforcement are against a senate plan to move the SBI out of the justice department and into the department of public safety. Under the direction of the governor's appointee.
"House speakers and people of interest like that, in the politcal community actually that work for the state, I think it might be a questionable stand point if they're not found guilty or found guilty. I feel like it puts the SBI in a position where it's more politcal than law enforcement wise," said Chied Edward Gillim.
Tuesday, Governor Pat McCory said he also disagrees with the proposal.
