From the Wilmington website:
Department of Public Safety
[/b]James N. Mosley, Director [/b]
The Department of Public Safety ensures the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Wilmington. The department is comprised of three divisions: emergency management; police; and fire.
Department of Emergency Management
The Office of Emergency Management coordinates the efforts of all city departments and the at-large community to ensure that city officials are prepared to respond quickly and effectively should disaster strike.
Department officials also maintain and administer the Wilmington Emergency Operation Plan, mandated by federal government to receive relief funds for disaster. The team works hard to keep communications networks, transportation systems, infrastructure facilities, and vital public goods and services flowing to residents and businesses in the city when emergencies occur.
not too sure of the role of a public safety officer. none of the above has any say. the police only enforce the law, read the code, state and city and it's easy to see that this person is FOS.
