CALEXICO, Calif. – Since Calexico Chief Mike Bostic and Richard Warne came on board for the City of Calexico some have wanted them out.
“They’re still working very hard to get rid of us because we bring the light to things that don’t want to have the light shined on it, and they know that we’re moving past the police department into the whole government operations here in the city,” Chief Mike Bostic said.
In case the city doesn’t hire him on permanently, Bostic says he cares enough about the community to have the Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney monitor the police department.
“The community deserves to be protected from what they’ve put up with for at least a decade and no longer be prisoners to an unethical police department,” Bostic said.
The department of justice conducted their own investigation and then entered into a memorandum of understanding and they’ll be in Caelxico next week.
“The awesome thing ab0out it is there’s no way the dark side can bring back another chief that they can do whatever they want because the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney’s Office will be monitoring everything,” Bostic said.
Bostic says even if the opposition succeeds in running them out of town their game is over.
“In the end, that’s what I’ve always wanted since the moment I got here was making a difference for the city because that’s what it’s about and it’s citizens,” Bostic said.
