Acting Metro Police Chief Faulkner promotes minority officers
Fifteen officers, one of whom is Hispanic, were promoted to rank of sergeant.
"Police spokesman Don Aaron told NashvillePost.com, 'I suspect it is the largest number of minority candidates promoted at one time since new promotional procedures went in to effect 10 years ago.'"
Promotions follow "stern memo" from Deputy Police Chief Steve Anderson to Faulkner "criticizing her for failing to address the racial disparity in the department's leadership ranks. Specifically, Anderson complained about the relatively small number of minority sergeants and captains," according to the Nashville Scene.
