We love rumors. It's just a fact of life in the Department that rumors make everything interesting. Plus, it gives us something to type when everything else is boring.
Rumblings from the Academy and 35th Street are as follows - 25 Captains shortly, followed by 50 to 70 Lieutenants. This Lieutenant number seems high, but maybe the retirements hit them harder than they thought? In August, we should see a class of 100 Sergeants. Whether or not this is a promotion date or a date that they'll be doing Detective ride-alongs remains to be seen. Perhaps someone from the D-units can ask around and see if their bosses have heard anything? No word on a final class of Dicks before the new test results come out or if they're going to trash the test. Rumor also has it that there is going to be a purge at the Academy. The new ADS is going to bring in a whole sh**load of new people.
