Rumors We've Heard
Rumors that seem to have some basis in fact. Anything else, post in the comments section.
- Detective's Class - 50 Detectives (from the new list) in the academy for January. Supposedly they have the class times and instructors booked already. But 50 won't even keep up with promotions and retirements. The Department is very shorthanded.
- Sergeant's Class - We heard (HEARD) that the rumor of them cutting short the Detective portion of training is complete BS. They are spending the whole 90 days in the areas and the final portion of training begins immediately after the January dick's class graduates - around 06 February. The class should be an even 100. Also, the list is up through fall of 2006, maybe spring of 2007.
- Lieutenant's Test - The test is in the final planning stages and should (SHOULD) be administered before summer, but that is a very iffy type rumor. Take it with a grain of salt - our sources were very vague on this one. No word if they'll do one more class, but it looks doubtful.
Rumor becomes reality - a northside source of ours (thanks S) confirms that an order has been cut requiring a Daily Bulletin to be in squad cars at all times. We stand by our description of this as a "pimpy" mover though. Your working guys always had a copy and your non workers never used it anyway. Auditing & Internal Control must be using this as a "stop-gap" measure for falling infraction numbers since black vest covers are now legal and city stickers aren't due for another 6 months.
