During a meeting Monday afternoon, Michael Calloway, President of the Local 81 Monroe Chapter of the International Union of Police Associations, confirmed to KTVE/KARD union members agreed to begin a ballot confidence vote in Chief Holmes.
Calloway said members of the union will cast their vote of confidence or no confidence over the next two weeks.
However the vote is decided, Calloway said those results will then be sent to Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo.
This decision comes after an internal survey of the police department was revealed to the public months ago, showing how more than 80% of officers reported lower morale than in years past and that they would take another job if they could.
We will bring you more details once we receive them.
