MONROE, La. (AP) - Monroe Police Union leaders and Mayor Jamie Mayo emerged from a two-hour meeting with conciliatory remarks they hope will begin to temper a summer-long feud over the city’s police chief.

After Tuesday’s meeting with union leaders, Mayo told The News-Star (https://tnsne.ws/1l2V7UT ) communication is always the key. He said he and union had a good conversation about what has occurred and where they need to go.

It’s the first meeting between the two sides since the union issued a no-confidence vote in Chief Quentin Holmes last week and Mayo followed with a blistering assessment of the union’s leadership and the department’s performance.

The vote followed an internal survey conducted in the spring showing a serious drop in morale among officers under Holmes leadership.
