Rumor Mill Activity

Rumor has it three (3) Captains are going to lose their bars today as the have not fulfilled the requirements to hold the position (i.e. four year degree). No word on where they're going or how it's going to come down. The only name we heard was a certain person who has been on the receiving end of merit promotions at least three times.

You know what really cracks me up about the kool-Aid crew, its that they are so out of touch. Every once and a while you hear these goofs (on the way home in a take home car) get on the radio "squad...oh no there's a fender bender in traffic, you need to send a car right away!" Then the dispatcher tells them that there is a back-log and there on-view traffic crash is at the bottom of the list. This is when I start to giggle.
I can just picture them standing there scratching there head. Hmmm what should I do?? Completely clueless how to handle even the simplest of police related incidents. And you know they are mother f'in the beat guys at the water cooler the next day for not racing to the scene for a type A drivable crash.
Yeah this jobs legit

The lieutenants that are in patrol, and are acting patrol watch commanders, are considered by the 35th Street brass as losers. They have no clout, and know what a bunch of bullshit that C.A.P.S. and Strategy and Accountability is.

So they will promote people that haven't been in a district station for more than five minutes. What, they expect me to work at night!?!

The Jane Fonda comment has been proved to be an Urban Legend. Yes, she called US Airmen war criminals and baby killers. Yes, she was named on of the women of the centruy (a few years ago) but NO, she didn't pass slips of paper given to her by POWs to their captors. Go to Snopes.com and read about it. There are plenty of reasons to hate Hanoi Jane's guts, but we don't need fiction to do it.

SCC: Eh, what's up, Exempts?
EXEMPTS: Nothing's up!
SCC: Hey! Let's make some Kool-Aid!

(Contents of Kool-Aid are poured into a pitcher; SCC keeps stirring, unaware of the new clear liquid. then suddenly, a long line of exemots and brass pop up on the sidewalk They come clamoring down to greet SCC, who serve them Kool-Aid.)

Given how easy it is to get your bachelor's degree now (ala Lewis University), there's absolutely NO excuse these captains can give for not getting their degrees. Come on. You can go to the academy, get your Mickey Mouse University degree and be done. Either it's fucking laziness or a matter of the usual "I'm Special" and the rules don't really apply to me.

college has become a big business in this country.
a college education is unnecisary for most of the positions in this dept. or the private sector for that matter. the fields of engineering, medicine, law, education and the sciences all require a high degree and one should seek out the finest school.
if you paid attention in high school you will probably have no problem functioning in all but the most technical positions on this dept. with minimal on the job training.
we all know people who spent a lot of money at a mediocre school persuing an unmarketable degree who are now making less money than a patrolman.
in the near future, with tuition skyrocketing and white collar job offshoreing, more and more "educated" people will be performing a cost benifit analysys.

There's nothing wrong with the degree requirement if it is required when you come on this job, it wasn't for most of us with over 10 years on. The city then decides they want college for future promtions, now most people that want to be promoted have to throw their family lives into upheaval and try to get back to school to satisfy this requirement, instead of being grandfathered in, the logical choice, say from 1995 and on; so schools like Lewis, Calumet etc. recognize this and try to make it alittle easier and convienent for those in that category to fulfill this requirement and they constantly get slammed, I can't figure it out, and no I don't go to one of those schools but probably will so I can finish my Bachelors, while working and raising my kids.

No disrespect but I, too agree that there are exceptions. Some of the "exceptions" know that they have my friendship, admiration and respect. I wouldn't name these bosses lest they be working as a field lieutenant in some shithole thirty miles from home.

Don't concern yourself about MY composure. I've "chill(ed) the fuck out" along time ago. You might say it coincided with my retirement.

Perhaps you could tutor me on my inadequate reading skills.

there are NO requirements to become an "exempt" member of this department, ANYONE can be appointed regardless of rank, or even status as sworn/non sworn.
The Captain's requirement to have the degree was written into the CONTRACT in 1999 with a deadline of 1 JAN 06, anyone who wanted to be a Captain had 6 years to comply - that isn't too bad - and that included those who were appointed before 1 JAN 06.
Perhaps exceptions could have been written into the contract, but they weren't.

You are an idiot. The only "legitimate" reason to have a degree to get the job, is because they told you to!

The Shity instituted this rule in an attempt to keep gang bangers and other degenerate thugs out of the Dept. That's it! Period.

It's not that they want intelligent police (god forbid that!), or they want police that are really good at sucking down beer bongs. They just thought it would cut down some of the problems that they had in the past. Jeez, get over it.

The college requirement should not apply to officers who have over 20 yrs on, just their experience alone should make up for the need. But what you get is more lawyers in upper level of command who couldn't make it in real world as a lawyer but think they know all about police work, rarely did any street work (there are exceptions) and cause more harm that any good they provide. I agree they should grandfather those officers in.

Best Bosses I ever worked for had high school diploma's. They didn't worry about statistic's, media driven hype, or political beurocratic bullshit.
If the shit hit the fan, the boss had a number of guy's on the watch to take cure of the problem. In at least have a logical answer for it.
If they didn't have an answer, well, they told the truth. "Were still looking into it."
Today there's a press room, computer whizzes printing spread sheets, and analyzing...or brainstorming shit. They want answer's right now!
IT HASN"T DONE SHIT, the crime goes up and down, the press is alway's there, and crime will alway's be crime.
If you need a degree to lock up a schmuck for steeling a car, or selling a tin of heroin, and can't explain it to the judge that you had the right to do it, then stay in school, get a job analyzing all the wasted money this depatrment uses on bullshit.
Crime is crime, the cop's simply put the bad guy's away for doing it.
For the asshat (I still can't figure out what that is, except a toilett seat) who keep's saying 70 g's a year, what are you complaining about. The dividen work's out with inflation (REMEMBER THAT UNSPOKEN WORD BY ANY ADMINISTRATION---THEY NO LONGER USE IT. IT'S BAD FOR SOCIAL MORALE)to be at about $45,000.00.
Yes on the books, the older cops makes $70g's: after taxes, all bill's, and cost of living increases (INFLATION FOLK'S)you have enough money left over to buy a used car, and a weekend trip to Wisconsin.
I'll say it again; 70g's, after taxes equals about 45g's, add all the bills, you equal chump change.
Your making $45grand a year.
