There won’t be any “plausible deniability” when the curtain is pulled back, nowhere to hide and no one to “scapegoat.”Jonathan Carone wrote: ↑July 22nd, 2021, 2:50 pm I don't think there's a conflict of interest with LUPD, but given they report to Laura Wallace, there's definitely a conflict of interest from her part. She's the wizard behind the curtain in a lot of these instances making sure things get swept under the rug or are handled internally.I don't remember exactly when it happened, but as of last fall LUPD no longer reports to LW or HR. Ron Sloan is the Vice President of Campus Safety and Security, unless they changed the official title. He is over the PD, Access Control, and Environmental Health and Safety and answers directly to Prevo.
But yes, she's the one holding a lot of puppet strings for sure.
In the “real world,” when you have a title, there is an expectation of professional competence and responsibilities; the responsibility of the superior for the known acts of their subordinate(s). And in the case of sex crimes investigation, when you don’t have the agency capability/competence to handle them correctly…you defer to those who do, right from the start, i.e. Lynchburg PD.
Welcome to the show, this is where you land when you run for years’ without true oversight & accountability…with “loyalty” being the target attribute.
