FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The Fayetteville City Council will hear a consultants’ report on the police department’s use of searches where officers don’t have a warrant.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives will present its recommendations Monday before a televised meeting of the Fayetteville City Council.

The meeting is the council’s first since members asked City Manager Dale Iman to step down because they were unhappy that he opposed the council’s vote to end consent searches.

Some residents and local groups, including a minority lawyers association and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, raised concerns a year ago that the police force may be illegally profiling black drivers.
