SPRING LAKE, N.C. — A citizens group that formed after a North Carolina town’s police chief resigned and two officers were arrested is meeting with the department’s new leader.

The group Citizens on the Move is holding a town hall meeting Thursday so citizens can talk to interim Chief Gregg Jarvies. Group member Winford Lee told The Fayetteville Observer the mayor and four of the town of Spring Lake’s aldermen also will attend.

Judicial officials in Cumberland County have said they won’t accept felony cases from the local police. The county sheriff has taken over patrols and investigations in the town near
Fayetteville.

Two senior police supervisors face charges ranging from kidnapping to larceny and embezzlement.
