Alleged Downtown Meeting
From one of the comments sections, a reader tells us of a meeting downtown on 16 October. The meat of the comment is as follows:
- We just got word from our commander that THIS MORNING, 16 October 2006, a meeting was held down at headquarters. This is what was covered;
- 12 or more TRRs in a year's time AND/OR 20 or more CR numbers (unfounded, not sustained and YES even EXONERATED) will be grounds to put an officer in a personal concerns like program
- ALSO...it will be grounds for that officer to be dumped out of whatever unit they are in or from the tact team.
- The reason? Purely money. The city is tired of paying out millions in settlements.
From there, the comment heads downhill - we won't even say on where it ends up. But if true, this is a major policy change that is going to have an impact on operations citywide. We've recently received a couple of e-mails, opinion pieces if you will, that cover exactly this topic. We will be culling some of the better ideas (so as not to identify an anonymous source) and have a post up later this week.
