Barrington Police Chief challenges lack of transparency in plan for countywide police force

Barrington Police Chief Joseph Eisenhardt, president of the Camden County Police Chiefs Association, was not among the chiefs invited to a county meeting to discuss a plan for a regionalized police force, according to this report.

He showed up anyway, along with other members of the association’s executive board — then took eight of the 10 chiefs who were invited with him when he was not allowed to enter the meeting, the report states.

“The nutshell concern that we have is who is going to pay for this and how much is it going to cost?” Eisenhardt told the Courier.

“I was disappointed and maybe upset that I couldn’t get in the meeting. But not surprised. It just goes along with the fact that there hasn’t been a lot of transparency throughout this process.”

    It is a huge cause for concern when the President of the Camden County Police Chiefs Association is denied entrance into a meeting to discuss a regionalized police force. Everyone should be outraged at how this is progressing without taking into consideration the opinions and concerns of the people of Camden County!
