Exempt Changes

:::shaking fist at readers again:::

In another stunning breakdown of the rumor system, numerous exempt changes were made in the past hour or so and NO ONE TOLD US! Thanks to those who posted in the comments section to let everyone know. Here's what we sort of have so far:

McCotter out of Special Events over to ADS of Patrol Bureau
Lanuti out of Traffic to Special Events
Frank Limon to Chief of OCD
Capt. Kolman (018) to Traffic
Capt. Bob Evans (022) to Commander of Field Monitoring
Capt. Price (016) gets 016
Skahill shunted to ADS of CAPS.

The odd one out here seems to be Skahill. Everyone knows Starks got pushed off into a CAPS role as punishment. Is Skahill being pushed aside too? We'll publish again when we get a hold of the press release.

Well, at least we in Patrol got McCotter back. Thats a start in the right direction. Now if we could only get rid of the rest of the bean counting, ladder climbing, number crunchin, know nothing, do nothing Police wannabes that we refer to as "exempts" we would be in good shape.

Mccotter is D/C of Patrol now, it's about time, what a prince of a guy, well deserving; Ralph Price is Commander 016, Skahill is now ADS of CAPS taking Limon's spot, I don't think its a dump, if so, she wouldn't have gone from Lt. to Commander 007 to D/C Patrol in a few years. 016 look out, Price is brutal. Don't know much about the rest.

to: 03:00....I would hestitate about that....look into his experience, i.e., where did he work, and for how long at each place? How does/did he treat his co-workers ? Wherever he worked, what did he do (or not do)? Who/what is his political clout, and if so, is the clout of the highest integrity or tainted?.......

Coleman is a PSYCHOTIC BITCH that was in 024, killed the watch worse than the current capt....went to 011 and hit the medical until her juice could get her out of there, haven't heard how she was in 018....Watch out

Maybe Price is what 016 needs right now....God knows the majority need a fire lit under their asses

Skahill is an idiot! She was dumped into the same useless unit that Starks was exiled to. The First Deputy of CAPS and the ADS of CAPS. What a joke. Limon was dying to get out of there. Good for him he is a top notch boss.

1st and 2nd watch are good. 3rd watch WC is an idiot micro-manager. So is one of his two female LT's. The Sgts are all good except Sgt "who's my baby-daddy" on days. The D/C is a political a$$ kisser...maybe 005 isnt so bad huh

Charles Williams is Deputy Supt Bureau of Patrol not Assistant Deputy Supt (ADS) that would be McCotter.

11/01/2005 11:02:00 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Anyone notice they have not named a Chief of Bureau of Patrol yet...this is why:
Once Starks "retires" it will open up the only 3 star position in the budget(1st Deputy). That will be given to Charles Williams (since he is wearing 2 stars now - former designation of Chief of Patrol) When that happens Deputy Chief Dugan will be promoted to Chief of Patrol (2 stars) and all of the street deputies (ADS's) will report to Williams (including McCotter).
Skahill??? not sure. But don't tell anyone I told you this stuff

I agree, I worked for Evans when he first made Captain and came to the 8th district on 3rd watch. Seemed like a real stand-up guy. When he moved over to 22 I thought for sure he was going to be made the commander.
As for his new job, I never heard of it. If I had to take a guess I would have to say its the new name for the inspectors unit.

Am I wrong about the pets that fatty has promoted to exempt from sergeant or P.O.? Ill give you one for free: commander of 001. The mayor's buddy and ex-driver. went from sgt to commnander. The rest of you goons will have to figure out the rest. Im through trying to help all you dumb-numb nuts by providing valuable insight to the truth.

Keating was in charge of the mayors detail, then made Commander of TRU and now Commander of 001.

Thanks for confirming the fact that I am right. He went from Sgt to commander of the Mayor's detail--read that to be the mayor's driver--to commander or TRU to 001. There are a couple of PO's out there who were friendly enough with fat Phil to get made exempt as well. Ill keep that to myself. Unless someibe asks me real nice to tell all my secrets.

Skahill isn't that bad. She is not an ego-maniac or micro manager like most gold stars. Also, she is educated, fair and pretty well-spoken. We could and have done much worse.

Commander Wheeler was a gentleman and let the Sgts/Lts supervise the Dets. My guess is he was fed up with the nonsense from 35th St where they expect all supervisors to be versed in every inane detail of every agg bat, homicide, CSA, armed robbery etc. Just so they can impress each other at ALL those silly meetings. Maher is a joke

She is a fearless, street-wise professional with years of excellence and experience as a savvy detective and street cop. The Detective Division is blessed to have her as our leader and mentor. Chief Maher's administrative skills are legendary. Hail to the Chief!
