Police officers march in protest of chief



Published: Thu, August 4, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



NILES -- City police marched in front of their administration building Wednesday, saying they have no confidence in Chief Bruce Simeone.

Members of the patrol officers union, the Ohio Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said morale is low, and they want city residents and council members to know about it.

Simeone, who has led the department since 1996, couldn't be reached.

The police union says grievances, arbitrations and unfair labor practices have cost residents money that should have been used within the department.

The officers referred to a report compiled by the Ohio Association of Chiefs of Police released in October 2003 that read "internal distrust has evolved to a point that it cannot be fixed without outside assistance."

Officers and the city shared the cost of the $10,000 study.
