Improper Record Keeping at Hillsborough Police Department?

I just received the following press release from the town of Hillsborough.  I wonder what impact this will have on the sheriff's race, where (recently) former Hillsborough Police Chief Clarence Birkhead is challenging incumbent Sheriff Lindy Pendergrass, with early voting starting today.  Because this is the first I have heard of this issue, I have no idea if it's significant that the town chose to put out a press release today, as opposed to waiting until the investigation was completed.  The timing seems odd to me, and from the press release it's unclear that the police department (or its leadership) did anything wrong if indeed their accrediting agency instructed them to backdate reports.  Is there anyone more familiar with this issue who can comment?

Hillsborough Town Manager Eric Peterson is nearing the end of an investigation regarding improper recordkeeping in the Police Department’s CALEA accreditation process.

Happy New Year 2010!!!

Before going to bed on this first day of the new year I wanted to take a moment to say Happy New Year to all my friends & fellow bloggers on Orange Politics.  It has been a busy year in local politics, and national politics too.  Here is a rather optomistic view of the president's first year in office.  I for one think there is a lot more work to be done, but I think it is far from a bad start:  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2010/1/1/820494/-Where-we-were,-and-where-we-are

Happy New Year!!!  How did you celebrate?  What resolutions did you make?  How will the glasses "0" shortage be solved?

As you can see, the "double 0" glasses crisis has been averted for a year by centering 2010! with a exclamation point, but we must demand more sustaintable solutions.


We had a small party at my place with food, drinks, games, some Mario Kart wii, and of course watching the ball drop.

2010 Senate Democractic Primary

Since this area plays such a strong role in the democratic politics/ideals in this state, & since one of our own might join the race, I think this will be an interesting topic for discussion.
