Some members of the Aurora police union, reportedly upset over a plan to give a city commission investigating citizen complaints subpoena power over the police, decided to stop writing (or at least slow down) the number of tickets issued to motorists.
The police brass initially complained about the ticket picket, but later pooh-poohed the protest. Meanwhile, union President Wayne Biles told the public, essentially, move along, there was nothing to see here.
"There has been no change in our commitment to serve and protect the citizens of Aurora," Biles wrote in a letter to the editor. "Contrary to what The Beacon News inferred, we are busier than ever, making more traffic stops than last year and having more contacts with the public." (emphasis added)
