Results of a union vote by Waterloo police officers and sergeants on police chief Tom Jennings were released today. In a statement released today by the Waterloo Police Protective Association, union president Randall Hammitt said the majority of the officers who voted last week do not have confidence in Jennings’ leadership as chief. The results of the vote come just days after Waterloo mayor Tim Hurley publicaly voiced his support for Jennings. On Friday, Hurley said there are no plans to replace him as chief. Union members hope the “no confidence” vote shows the mayor and city council that there are some serious leadership issues that need to be resolved within the police department. Union leaders plan to meet with Hurley this week to discuss their concerns regarding Jennings, who’s been Waterloo’s chief since 2000.
