Fort Lauderdale/Broward Branch Officers attend and speak out at FLPD CRB Meeting

 

Broward NAACP President Marsha Ellison told members of the city's Citizens Police Review Board on Monday that she is concerned about potential retaliation against officers for telling the truth to consultants about racial divisions and problems within the department.

"I don't think anybody here truly believes it stops with five or four officers," Ellison said. "To sit here and know that anyone that speaks up is suddenly going to be under investigation, what does that say about the department?"
