The embattled president of Annapolis' Black Officers Association will remain at the helm, despite the controversy following his recent criticism of the city's police chief.
Association members met Mondaynight to discuss the impromptu news conference that Officer George Kelley had two weeks ago. At the time, Kelley accused Chief Harold Robbins of racial intimidation and of trying to weaken the 9-year-old association.
His remarks surprised and angered senior officers, who said they knew nothing about the news conference and fully supported the chief.A rift between them and the younger members of the association became clear.
Although some members had called for Kelley's resignation, no action was taken Monday night, according to members who attendedthe meeting.
Kelley could not be reached for comment yesterday.
