Charlotte-Mecklenburg police arrested one of their own Wednesday after a domestic violence investigation...

  1. i am not surprised. my faith has been somewhat restored in cmpd. dealings with this person in the past when assaulted were tainted with disbelief from him and subsequent lack of enforcement of the law. issues such as police reports indicating false information and being treated in a disdainful manner made it very hard to feel safe with this person patrolling my area and responding to calls. let this be a lesson that it is only a matter of time for those that do not hold to the standards of any public service office we have VOLUNTARILY elected to be a part of. my only question is where was the domestic violence division when i needed them?

    [Excerpts] ...Officer Duane Lattimore was recommended for dismissal on March 15, 2010. Police officers were called to his home six times in three months for "domestic violence related" incidents, according to the civil service board. For most of the incidents, the district attorney's office rejected the cases for prosecution. Other charges were dismissed at trial. But the civil service board said it was still concerned with allegations that Lattimore punched a hole in the wall of the couple's home. "While responsibility for the incidents is shared between Officer Lattimore and his wife, Officer Lattimore is held to a high standard as a member of the Department. The number of incidents involving Officer Lattimore also reflects bad judgment on his part," the board's review said. Lattimore could not be reached late Friday...

  4. They wouldn't recommend him for dismissal without cause. People accuse all the time but there has to be something to the accusations before they discuss firing an officer. I'm sorry that this is happening in your family and difficult to see.
