Detective List is Out

Watch this space for names later tonight. It might be a whole lot later though, just so you know. Congrats to the new guys and gals - is this going to affect the pre-sergeants who are in the Areas at this time? We saw that rumor posted in a comments section that they might get sworn in early for either (A) federal grant money or (B) to make room for real detectives.

UPDATE: Whomever typed in the list in the comments section, THANK YOU! We'll get a little something extra for you in the envelope next week. We're also going to copy/paste it here on the front page so the new Detectives can experience the joy of having their names on the SCC main page.

May all of our new Detectives that were SVU bashing Supercops in the Districts come to the Area spouting how their investigative ability is too good for SVU.

May they learn that SVU does a lot of work that is not known about by the SUPERCOPS because the jobs SVU handles are the jobs that SUPERCOPS blow off.

You SUPERCOPS know who you are.

To the officers who do their jobs without thinking their skills are being wasted by investigating domestics and child abuse, I salute you.

Detective school is about a month long. It might be a bit longer now since all new detectives are trained to process juveniles, so the soon-to-be sergeants may be gone by the time new detectives come out.

I've heard that the reason they r only making 50 dicks at a time is manpower, not money. They will supposedly have 4 classes of 50 this year.
That way they won't have to many people at once off the street. They r admitting we r very short on manpower.

Just what they did for Cline's kid's team in 011 awhile back. That is pattern enough for me to email Brennan. At least one of the guys on that team has a loooong time on, but never passed (maybe never took?) the exam before. Put him on a team with the son of one of Daley's co-conspirators and suddenly he's among the top scores? With, gasp, the rest of his team?

Or maybe they just studied really, really hard!!! Yeah, that's the ticket.

As a Area 2 SVU Dick I cannot wait for the help. I know it is a small class but the GREAT majority of you will be going to areas 1 and 2. I also look forward to the fact that you will all have your 2 month rotation in SVU. I know we are not real dicks, we just handle battered children who have no one to speak for them, Battered Women who are afraid to prosecute, Missing persons including tender age and Elderly people. Also we only handle elderly abuse, but hey, who cares if grandma with alzheimer's is being taken for her money by the caretaker. We also handle those 6 D/C 12 yr old arrests who have never been arrested before and the parents were never contacted when I showed up. Yes, I look forward to all new classes. When the 2 month training is done I have had more than one new dick tell me they never realized the BS that happens in SVU.
The only hope I have is that, Like the old Brek (Sp?) commercial these 51 tell 2 friends and so on and so on.....

Roy Isakson 011 (3 years on job) and sister Nari Isakson 023 (6 years on job) MAKE DICK TOGETHER.

Now.. has it got anything to do with the incident in 2001 when Nari Isakson was slapped by an ADS's kid??? The kid was locked up in 023..THEN the father, THE ADS (forget his name.. he was known as the “Mambo King”) comes into 023 to talk to Capt. Ralph Price to kid his punk kid out of it. The ADS winds up getting dumped by Hillard.

Could this possibly be a settlement of some kind??

IM the area 2 SVU dick. I actually held back on how I really feel. Besides what I said there is always the phone call "what Do I do?" Which is fine but when I ask what their Sgt told them to do the answer is they told them to call us. Same thing with many W/Cs. I know I am not a supervisor but it amazes me ho often Officers, Sgts and W/Cs call us for advice. Before you rip on me I have no problem helping a beat car but when I have to start making decisions for a Sgt and W/C their is a problem. Trust Me. When no one has answer they call the D-unit. I should be making Commanders pay with the advice I have to give out that is only one click away on CLEAR.

Not jealous here because I also did well enough to eventually get made off this list, but the comments about the coppers in 011 are very true. A couple of the guys are superstars and deserve their promotions. The others? Eh, clout babies. I know, I worked with them.

The fucked up thing is how the department manages to "make" its people by granting them a high score, THEN they also "make" their merit picks. I never believed all the bitter old-timers when they would tell me that ALL promotional tests are fixed, and I apologize to them for that, but I see it now.

I almost suspect that they also made a small class to break up the 011th district cluster of high scoring PO's. Rest assured that there will be more of the inner circle of 011 District clout babies made in the next few classes.

I'd rather be working with these guys in the future, but the fact that the department/city can actually slip its sticky fingers into the testing process and award high scores to their clout babies is total bullshit.

If its true they were all on the same tact team, my guess is that it all ties back to Devine's son and the type of stuff he may have done or been exposed to in 011.

Not even the stuff the honchos know about, just the kind of stuff that they would have to guess the kid did or saw out there. How to keep it under wraps? Promote the whole team and tell em to play along.

As for R.I., I can't believe that jr. got it in 3 years when sr. didn't in 29.

You are a clueless fucking moron and shill.

You have classes in high school where everyone studies together for four years. They don't all score in the same band on a test. They don't all appear as 6 or 8 in a spread of 50 from a test group of 2000 or 2500. Instead, they are all over the map on SATs and ACTs and almost any exam.

You have people in colleges, law schools and medical schools where everyone studies together for four years. They don't all score in the same band on a test.

Come back with a 4th grader's understanding of statistics before you tell us how its all legit. This is beyond impossible.

You and I and any 2 of those guys could sit down in a room together for 1/2 hour and try to memorize 30 facts.

At the end of 1/2 hour, you think we are all going to have scores within 1 point of each other if we were asked to spit it back out?

Now make that thousands of pages of orders, rules, procedures and laws, and a few years to memorize it. We are all going to fall between 99.5 and 99.55% on the test?

"What a bunch of jealous jagoffs, I worked with all those guys in 011 and they are all top-notch workers"
-I work with a group of top notch workers too. We all "stayed out of the tavern" and "kept our heads out of our asses." We all studied the same material. I made this class, and my coworkers range from the 900's-200's. It is naive to think that 8 or so people all made the first class because of a study group, unless that group happened to have access to information the rest of us did not. It is frustrating and demoralizing to those of us who got here legit, and sad to know my non-cheating coworkers will have to wait.

While some jealous jerks may be reluctant to admit it, the truth is that any coppers who work the mean streets of 011 has our respect.

However, the mathematical probability of such success of those 8 guys from the same tac team, not to mention the sister in 023 and the Devine connection raises red flags.

Where's the retired sgt. who came up with experts sigiting odds of 14,000,000,000 to 1 of fraud in that lts. scam?

It's actually easy to score in the same band when you study the same material together, practice test together like they did, it's happened before it will happen again so stick your 4th grade statistics up your ass. It's amazing, you make on score you somehow had the answers if you are meritorious you are a jagoff; here's another news flash, you couldn't give 2 coppers the answer to a test let alone 8 and tell them to keep it a secret without all their friends having the answers so go blow that smoke up someone elses ass. Jealousy is a terrible thing.

There are 6 or 8 people in this entire city who might say something like this, and its only because they have motivation. You sound like you have personal knowledge of these guys.

Like I said, you, me and any two of those guys could sit down for 1/2 hour and try to memorize 30 facts. Test us later and see the variance in the results... and you have barely touched on how unlikely it is that this would happen on the up and up... studying together or not.

This has NEVER happened in history legitimately, and it never will.

>>here's another news flash, you couldn't give 2 coppers the answer to a test let alone 8 and tell them to keep it a secret without all their friends having the answers so go blow that smoke up someone elses ass.<<

Here's a news flash for you, you couldn't give the answers to an extensive test to any 8 coppers, let alone 8 junior west side 1-bag heros, and have them MEMORIZE the answers in 24 or 48 hours, let alone have them know it on the legit.

Either they had advance copies long before the test, or the scoring was flawed, or somebody royally screwed around with the merit in order to entice a few guys into silence. Lots to keep mum about in 011, 'specially when the state's attorney's son is out there running around on the tac team.

That is the only explnation for this, and I'm sorry if the truth hurts. Don't see how I'd be convincing you though. Just keep clicking your heels together and repeat after me:

I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and goddarn it, people do like me.

You actually think this test was legit? It wasn't. There was a rumor about cheating long ago. Guess it was true. What a fucking slap in the face to those of us who studied and did well. Funny most of those in the top 50 work on the same gang team or are related to each other. Why isn't there a lawsuit? Why isn't FOP doing something about this.

next question, are there any suspicious ties than between the people in 023? Like maybe they worked together or something?

Having thought about this, the answers might have been provided to someone in 023, and passed to a brother in 011 etc. Lord knows that someone in 023 could catch an occasional city/police bigwig in a compromising and embarrasing position somewhere in 023.

So did the info flow from 011 to 023 (80% odds), or could it have been from 023 to 011 (20% odds). And what is the source in the first place?

A conspiracy like this would collapse like a house of cards under pressure, so I'm actually kinda wondering if maybe these guys get dragged into the Dirksen building? Hmmmm.

The only people I personally know on this list, four northsiders, have always seemed like heads-up, non-whiners who would in my very humble opinion make good dicks.

The group from 011 tact that scored in a tight group were a)studying as a group, b)studying the same material.

The same type of tight grouping on tact teams that went to the "Speshul Chosen Ones" study group with the "Speshul Chosen Ones EXTRA-SPESHUL Study Guide" has happened many times before over the years. It's no suprise.

What IS a suprise to me is the teeth gnashing, mouth breathing and petty comments a few people on this board have reacted with.

This is CHICAGO!!!

Settling on only one possible conclusion before any investigation makes you a great candidate for a detective in this department.

I'd agree that this is the most likely scenario, but there are 6 or 8 other reasonably likely possibilities.

The one thing I'd put money on is that it involves Devine, and is an effort to make potential problems for the father disappear. You work tac in 011, you are definitely doing things that Democratic politicians don't want Democratic voters to know about.

Come to think about it, the possibility (probability?) exists that somebody just gave the Devine kid the answers, and he couldn't resist trying to help his friends on the tact team, one of whom turns around to help his sister etc.

Hell, for all we know, the top 100 scores might have just been competitions of 10 groups with the answers. Certainly not saying they were (and not impugning the integrity of those 40 or so on the list who we don't have specific and obvious reason to "doubt"), but in this corrupt city? Anything is possible.

Congratulations to the new detectives, albeit a half-hearted one to the meritorious, or the clout heavy from the Eleventh District; you stole a promotion from someone who worked hard and earned it. And just a word about the SVU: As a past victim of a meritorious promotion process that is really an amalgamation of affirmative action and the same clout referred-above, don't balk at the SVU. Some of the "protected" supervisors can be a pain, but it's the only unit where you might have a chance of doing something for a real victim, unless you feel a four-year-old beaten half-dead somehow bears some culpability for what occurred.

Trust me, some of the best detectives in the city are working homicides and aggravated batteries and they're making a ton of overtime dough, if only they live to spend it. These guys are ten years younger than me and they look like zombies handling the non-stop shootings: dog shoots dog, dog stabs dog. Or lets look at westside sex crimes, you'll be lucky to get two real CSA's in one year. Your typical rape victim has been arrested for prostitution three or four times or is some pierced tongue ,white pig art student from Columbia College who, after coming off the paint thinner she mixed with Redbull, now has remorse for jocking Boo and his two friends from the Manor. You don't need to be Sherlock Holmes to know how to CCX or Unfound this nonsense.

Juvenile processing is soon to go to centralized locations leaving the domestics-and some of those are pretty good-and child abuse to SVU.

Don't balk at SVU, and if you're smart you'll kiss Steve Petersons ass and try to get to Area Four quick. You'll get trained by the best dicks in the city.

You know what I love? All of these assheads are in for a BIG change. All you so called "real police" will complain that working SVU and RBT is beneath them.

Well, guess what, one bag wonders? You're fucked if you come to Area 1.

The fact is this: Before Patty Walsh got here, every time they made a class, the class before got to laterally move if there were spots open in other sides of the floor.

The last class (we'll call it "post patty") came in with a few clout babies and changed it all. Now, Patty says there ain't enough sisters on the Homicide side, and 7 broads get to move over without waiting.

Plenty of able bodied dicks (Of all colors) that had done their time in the paperwork filled trenches got passed over. Plenty are STILL waiting.

A few good oldtimers like Earl even got dumped to make room for the herd of cattle that got kissed in.

So, if you come to Area 1 before she gets promoted, beware.

It's time to put the black hoodies on Ebay and give your little bag o' tricks to the next 2 year wonder. You'll have something to cry about very soon.

Personally, after running and gunning for a few years, it was a hard transition. I thought it sucked at first, too. The pace is slower. We eat well, laugh a lot, and deal with a lot of bullshit.

Make no mistake. I have no God complex. The heart of this department is still the beat guy in blue. But I wouldn't go back to it for the world, having tasted this.

Where else can you eat in 018, have coffee in 019, handle a crime scene in 007, go home and take a shit in 008 or 022, and then go bang a hot ASA or clerk in 018 again, all in the same night?

I'd clean the shitters for what they pay me. Take a number, kiddies. It'll be awhile in 610.

Oh - Boss Kline, you can remove these fucking Sgt. trainees ANY time, too ! 90 days ??? I want my desk back !

WHEN WE GRADUATE FROM THE ACADMEY WE ARE TOLD WHERE WE ARE GOING TO TRAIN AND END UP GOING TO DISTRICTS THAT ARE SHORT STAFFED. I CAN ONLY SPEAK FROM MY STAND POINT AND I WENT TO THE 011TH DISTRICT AND HAVE BEEN THERE FOR THE LAST 10 YEARS. WE ALL WORK IN 25 DIFFERENT DISTRICTS BUT WE ALL DO WORK IN DIFFERENT WAYS. WE CAN ALL TELL YOU A STORY ABOUT HOW HARD THE COPS HERE OR THERE WORK WHICH IS GREAT BUT THE QUESTION IS DID THESES GUYS FROM 011TH DISTRICT GET THE TEST OR HELP FROM A HIGHER SOURCE BEFORE THE EXAM WAS GIVEN. I CAN TELL YOU AS AN EYE WITNESS I WAS IN THE SAME STUDY CLASS WITH 6 OF THE OFFICERS, ONLY 6 OF THE OFFICERS ARE ON GANG OR TACT. I DONT BELIEVE FOR A MINUTE THAT THEY CHEATED OR RECEIVED HELP!! I WORKED ON A TEAM WITH 2 OF THEM AND I SCORED IN THE 500'S SOME OF US TEST WELL AND OTHERS DON'T. THINK ABOUT IT THIS WAY. THE 6 OFFICERS FROM 011 THAT ARE HERE AND NOT DETAILED TO SOME OTHER UNIT HAVE WORKED CLOSELY, JUST LIKE MANY OF YOU, WITH AREA FOUR DETECTIVES FOR THE LAST 3-8 YEARS. ALL OF THEM HAVE MORE AGG. BATT., MURDER, ETC.. ARRESTS THAN THE NORMAL AMOUNT WE MIGHT TRIP ONTO. THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THEY WERE THE ONES THAT WOULD COME INTO WORK A LITTLE EARLY AND GO UP STAIRS TO THE DETECTIVE DIVISION(AREA FOUR) AND CHECK IF THERE WAS ANY NEW INFORMATION ON CERTAIN CASES OR WITNESSES THAT WERE NEEDED. WHAT I'M SAYING IS THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING LIKE DETECTIVES FOR SO LONG AND STUDYING WHAT THEY DO THAT YOU CAN'T HELP BUT DO WELL ON AN EXAM ABOUT DETECTIVE WORK. CHASING DOWN 1 ROCK ARRESTS WILL NOT MAKE YOU READY TO TAKE A DETECTIVES EXAM BUT WORKING DAY IN AND DAY OUT WITH THEM AND LEARNING FROM THE LIKES OF LT. FERRELL, SGT. WALSH, DET. CRONIN, DET. KADO, DET. CERONE AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. THERE ARE GREAT DETECTIVES IN ALL THE AREAS AND THEY WILL ALL TELL YOU THAT THE LIST I JUST GAVE IS A PRETTY GOOD LIST OF GUYS WHO KNOW THERE STUFF. THIS IS LIKE BRINGING 300 KIDS(WHO WANTS TO BE IN THE NBA WHEN THEY GROW UP) TO A 3-7 YEAR PROGRAM WHERE THEY GET TO LEARN AND WORK DAY IN AND DAY OUT FROM SOME OF THE BEST NBA STARS, ODDS ARE AT LEAST 10 PERCENT OF THE KIDS WILL BE PRETTY GOOD OR MAYBE EVEN STARS. THESE 6 HAVE BEEN WORKING IN ONE PLACE FOR A WHILE AND THE TYPICAL SCENARIO OCCURS FOR MOST OF US: 1ST YOU WORK THE BEAT OR DESK FOR A WHILE AND IF YOU WANT SOMETHING MORE YOU WORK A RAPID CAR , NEXT YOU TRY TO GET ON THE MISSION TEAM BUT YOU STILL WANT SOMETHING ELSE, NEXT YOU PUT IN YOUR TO-FROM FOR TACT/GANG AND GET DENIED OVER AND OVER UNTIL YOU HAVE SPENT TIME ON THE WATCH AND BOSSES LEARN THAT YOU ARE MOTIVATED AND LIKE TO WORK/ YOU FINALLY GET ON TACT/GANG. AND NOW YOU ARE ASSIGNED MISSIONS LIKE AGG. BATT. OR BURGLARY ETC... AND YOU ASK THE DETECTIVES, WHO ARE AT LEAST WHEN I WAS COMING UP THE MOST RESPECTED GUYS AROUND, FOR A LITTLE HELP. WE HAVE ALL GOTTEN A GREAT PINCH AND THE FIRST PERSON THERE TO HELP US WRITE THE PAPER THE RIGHT WAY WAS USUALLY A SEASONED SGT., OLD TIMER ON THE WATCH OR A DETECTIVE. I BELIEVE THAT THESE 6 ACTUALLY LEANRED WHAT THEY KNOW AND DID WELL FOR ALL THE REASONS ABOVE.
WHEN THE ACTUAL TESTS ARE ALLOWED TO BE VIEWED BY ALL... THERE WILL NOT BE ANY APOLOGIES AND NONE WILL BE NEEDED BECAUSE WE WHO KNOW THESE GUYS KNOW THEY DID IT LEGIT.
WE HAVE ALL BEEN ACUSED OF WRONG DOING BY SOMEONE, WHETHER IT WAS "YOU PUT THAT ROCK ON ME" OR " THOSE POLICE BEAT MY ASS" OR "THEY TOOK MY MONEY" OR " I THING YOU ARE CHEATING ON ME " WHATEVER THE CASE MAY BE, ALL WE HAVE ARE EACH OTHER ON THIS JOB BECAUSE THE PUBLIC (THANKS TO DALEY AND THE MEDIA) DOESNT LIKE US. WHEN PEOPLE ACCUSE OTHERS OF CHEATING WITHOUT PROOF AND ITS ANOTHER COP DOING THE ACCUSING IT HURTS ALL OF US. WE GET ENOUGH OF THAT FROM THE MEDIA. I READ ALL OF THE REMARKS BEFORE I WROTE THIS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HATE A LOT OF OTHER DISTRICTS, BUT FOR WHAT REASON?
I WORKED WITH TACT. TEAMS FROM ALMOST EVERY DIST IN THE LASTS 7 YEARS ON JOINT MISSIONS OR DETAILS AND THEY ALL WORK HARD AND THEY ARE JUST LIKE THE REST OF US, UNDER PAID OVER WORKED AND UNDER APPRECIATED. RECENTLY THE 16TH DIST WAS HERE ON A JOINT MISSION WITH 25TH DIST. AND THEY CAUGHT A UUW/ ROBBERY ARREST BECAUSE CONTRARY TO POLULAR BELIEF THEY WORK HARD, LIKE SO MANY OF US BUT WE DON'T GET THE RECOGNITION OR RESPECT THAT WE SO DESPERATELY DESERVE.
NEW YORK CITY HAD AN OFFICER WHO WAS BEING FIRED FOR SOME BULLSHIT REASON AND %65 OF THE COPS SHOWED UP TO PROTEST IN ORDER TO SHOW THEIR SUPPORT FOR THEIR FELLOW OFFICER. CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS NEED TO BECOME A FAMILY AND IF WE CAN, THAN WE HAVE A LOT BETTER CHANCE COME CONTRACT TIME OR IF A FELLOW OFFICER NEEDS OUR SUPPORT. DALEY KNOWS THAT WE ARE NOT A FAMILY RIGHT NOW AND TAKES ADVANTAGE OF THIS ON EVERY CONTRACT. HE HOLDS OUR MONEY IN LIMBO COLLECTING INTEREST WHILE WE WAIT AND DO WHAT ARE BOSSES TELL US TO DO SINCE WE CAN'T STRIKE ! BUT I SAY IF WE GET REAL LEADERS IN EACH DISTRICT WHO CAN BRING US ALL TOGETHER THAN WE CAN START TO SEE VERY POSITIVE CHANGES IN ALL OUR DISTRICTS.
WE CAN START WITH THE SMALL COMPLAINTS: i need a locker, i don't get time due when i ask for it , my sgt. is on my ass all the time, u can't drive to your lunch location - eat - and drive back in thirty fucking minutes, why can't we get some new weight equipment in our workout room, why don't i ever get honorable mentions and who is encharge of them anyways.
I didn't do well in school and i never graduacted from college which you can tell from my bad writing but I AM A GOOD JUDGE OF CHARACTER, I BELIEVE THESE 6 ARE NOT CHEATERS AND I BELIEVE WE AS A WHOLE NEED TO BECOME A FAMILY OR DALEY WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF US TIL THE NEXT MAYOR COMES ALONG. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU AND YOURS AND GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS.

######################################################################For the record:
6 guys from 011 made the first class:
2 guys on the 1163 team
2 guys on the 1162 team
1 guy from the 1168 team
1 guy from the 1161 team
the other two guys left 011 1 or 2 years ago but are detailed where they are. Devines partner and 7 other team mates didn't crack the top 1000 on the list. So your smoking gun theory is total horse shit you salty bastards.

If what you're saying is true, that's eight merit picks from 011. Since 20% of 51 detectives is ten, then who are the other two merit picks?

I don't know who is who, but I don't believe eight merit picks came from 011.

The only people that think these PO's from 011 will make good dicks are those PO's from 011(Hmmmmmmm)
Tact teams run around all day pinching addicts for 1 rock possession. Then on a mission date they lock up every juvenile they can find on the streets.(for DC) Then they pull people over randomly, and get lucky with a gun pinch which requires that they "flower up" their case report for probable cause. If you think this is how detectives work, then dont take the test.
Also, every once in a while, Tact gets a decent Dope pinch (hard to believe in 011!)and they put themselves in for an honorable mention. They work less than 8hrs, and have been known to get a "free Day off" now, and then. Lets see where these guys are assigned...
This investigation continues

I'm sorry, but most of these postings about the "fix" being in sound like sour grapes to me. Mostly from people who didn't put a lot of effort into the test or didn't take it at all.

Yeah, because everybody knows that the only people who REALLY studied are in 011's tac and gang office or the Isakson home.

The other 4460 hung out at the beach that year.

4:08 did not say 8 merit picks came from 011 !! HE SAID ONLY 6 OF THOSE OFFCIERS ARE FROM 011, THE OTHER 2 LEFT LAST YEAR BUT ARE DEATILED OUT SO THEY ARE ON 011'S SHEETS. THE 6 THAT MADE IT FROM 011 ARE NOT ON THE SAME TEAM AND HE BROKE IT DOWN FOR U 2 FROM ONE TEAM 2 FROM ANOTHER AND THEN 1 AND 1. i THINK HIS POINT WAS THAT MANY WERE SAYING THAT DEVINE AND HIS TEAM ALL MADE DETECTIVE WHICH IS BULLSHIT. HIS PARTNER AND 7 OTHERS FROM HIS TEAM BOMBED ON THE TEST.

WE AT 189 THINK THAT EVERYONE COMPLAINING ARE THE ONES WHO BOMBED ON THE TEST. WE HAD 4 GUYS MAKE THE TEST AND NONE OF US TOOK A STUDY CLASS AND 2 OF US NEVER STUDIED AT ALL AND WE ALL SCORED IN THE TOP 50. SO WHERE IS YOUR ALLEGATIONS ABOUT US ? WHO DO WE KNOW ? THE ANSWER IS WE, AS ALL OF THOSE WHO TOOK IT, DID IT LEGIT. GO COMPLAIN ABOUT THE 10 HOUR WORK DAY BEING TAKEN FROM US AT LEAST SOMEONE REALLY CARES ABOUT THAT.

Why are people missing the obvious !
You need a mighty big phone call to get into Unit# 189 or Unit#193 yet
4 people of #189 make detective
Gerald Swinkle, Fernando Caravajal, David Hindman, John Lewis and
4 people from #193 make detective
Beth Svec, Lawrence Herhold, Amalio Coral, John Follino, it sure is a coincidence that an old boss from the unit helped in making up the new test.
I wonder who got some helpful hints on what to study. hmmmmmmmm

For the last 26 years, this city has been a cesspool that got worse and worse while the Democrats stole everything they could.

And you? You doubted it all and still do. You did nothing. You held out your hand, and tipped your hat on those oh-so-lucky days where you glimpsed the superintendent and the mayor.

And now? Now we have seen political hiring lists out of city hall. We've seen how many completely incompetent superintendents in a row?

I don't blame you for not seeing it old man. Its been beating you over the head for 26 years, and you are going to see it for the first time now?

Happy retirement, and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

ok. i'm from 011 and in the first class. i've been reading all this stuff, only because another one of my fellow 011th dist "cheaters" told me about it being on here. to be honest, some of it, i've found to be quite amusing, some of it i feel is just outright sad.
first, i'd like to start by saying congratulations to all who are in this det. class, and to all who will make the future classes !!! (regardless of what district or unit you may be from, or if you made it by score or meritorious)
i'll be as short on here as i can, but i will say this... no one from 011, or anywhere else that i am aware of, had any test answers or questions, or cheated in any way !!
personally, i did study some, as i am sure my 011th dist counter-parts did. and i am well certain that the majority of people who took the exam did as well. i am also certain that a good majority of people who took the exam are "working" coppers (again, regardless of what district/unit they may be from).
personally, i do live in 016 and have dealt with 016th dist coppers a couple times, and i also happen to know a few (and teh ones i know, have been in other places and, even in 016, are "working" coppers). i find the "sad" in that you cannot go to one blog (which in theory, seems to be directed primarily at us from 011) to another without seeing something posted so as to bash an entire group of po's from 1 or 2 units/districts. the sadness is that, as one "blogger" stated, we are all the police, and anything can happen anywhere-anytime & honestly, it does seem that we are all we've got for eachother !!! to be honest, i personally would not want to be the 016th dist po who has to deal with the copper related domestic, or the constant "my neighbor's dog is barking & shitting on my lawn all the time" bs !!! honestly, God bless ya for having to put up with that crap !! or the street/traffic stop where you hear "my dad/mom is so & so" all the time. i like very much where i came from, #1 because of the people i worked with, and #2 because those types of complaints were a rarity & #3, because i have learned alot working there !!!!
as for the 1 rock/1 blow dope pinches; yeah, i've made 'em !! no i have not chased down a simpleton hype to do it. i personally have always preferred robberies/burglaries/guns/shootings, etc, but regardless of where you work, you must devote some time to the most prolific problems of that district/area. in 011, as well as numerous other districts in the city, dope happens to be it.
do i appologize for having scored well on the dic's test? NO
do i regret having scored well on the dic's test? NO
should i have turned the "non-promotion" down? I'D HAVE HAD TO BE A PAPER ASSHOLE TO HAVE DONE SO!!
i did work hard in the district, as did my 011th district counterparts, and as did NUMEROUS other persons in this 1st class !! and i am fully aware that there are thousands of other coppers in this city that do the same !!! i won't sit here and say the the system currently in place is or is not the best available tool to be used to judge who should or should not be promoted (or non-promoted), but from what i understand, it sure as hell beats what existed years past, and currently, it's what we have to work with. i certainly do not believe that promotions should be basically made off of "merit" alone (which my understanding is that is how it is in NY). but i do think that there might be an argument for taking into consideration a po's personal arrest background, in addition to a test score (not so much the # of arrests, but the nature of them).
for those that have simply jumped on the "band wagon" and decided to join the arguement that something is awry i would suggest maybe doing something as simple as just asking around about all of us accused "cheaters". as for those who might truly and honestly believe this was the case, i have the follwing to say. should the city, union, and/or feds conduct an "investigation" into this exam and the appointments of this or subsequent classes, it's been pretty well implied, that when the results come back showing there was no wrong doing, you will simply state that the "fix" was obviously in with them too. so, for that fact, i suggest that you gather up a group of fellow po's who believe this, and hire your own personally chosen attorneys and investigators and allow them to look into it. then, when it results in the fact that there was no underhandedness, no taxpayers money would have been needlessly spent, and "maybe" you'll have nothing more to say.
please, by all means, feel free to attack this post, commend it, do what you wish with it...cuz quite honestly...i don't care. i did work hard in my district, and i will do so in whatever area i am assigned.
anyway, to all, i do trully wish a merry xmas/happy new year, and i say please be safe.

12:04, I'll apologize when someone impartial looks over the entire process. You have a good attitude. People here are mostly just asking the question, and its a rather obvious question to ask. Of course there are likely to be the occasional promotions out of 011 tac. The problem the PD is working with here is the pattern.

Not just the pattern identified here for this latest test, but the pattern over the last 5 years that cuts across different tests. There is no way to dispel the "suspicions" regarding these patterns without conducting an investigation.

The thing is, the city would fight this whole thing tooth and nail. I'm not saying that you and/or an occasional other from 011 are not legit. But the big picture would have the city doing a lot of 'splaining, to the grunts, to the public and to Noelle Brennan and the U.S. attorneys.

They fight the official investigations already, you think they would play ball if the FOP or a group of us commissioned a private investigation? No way. We would have to fight the city tooth and nail to get this whole process opened. It simply would not happen voluntarily.

12:04 Congratulations to you, I have been bashing those alleged 8 from 011. But now after reading more I am on the fence. At first I heard it was Devine and his whole team who made it. Then it was Devine and some of his team. Then I find out after calling my buddy in 011 that 6 mad it and the other to are in different units. my buddy tells me Devine made it and his partner and 7 others bombed it. Next I find out the 6 are from 4 different teams. Then I read that 4 from #189 and 4 from #193 made it and their old boss helped write the test. I call over there and my friend says everbody is laughing about it and there is no boss who just left who helped make the test. So where does it end? Well I am wrong for believing what I hear and not what I know and I am not going to comment unitl I have actual proof of any wrongdoing. Specualtion just does not cut it anymore. Merry Christmas to you.

Hats off to 1:18 for taking the time to figure things out rather than listen to the crybabies crying foul!

The biggest crybabies are the ones who put the least effort into the test, or didn't even take it.....I know this because I asked one yesterday. The officer was bitching about the 011 coppers making it and this officer didn't even take the test.

Merry Christmas
