A couple of interesting bits of info:
- A "School Overtime" initiative. Looks like the Department is hiring people back, off duty, on their days off, at time and a half, to help the young kiddies get out of the schools in one piece. A mere 5 years after disbanding the entire School Unit, it seems enough high schools are completely out of control at dismissal time that the school system that pisses away taxpayer dollars at a regular rate is now throwing money the Department's direction. Get it while it's hot people.
- Anyone want 100 rounds of ammunition? New Department Order coming out Monday - if you want to go to the any Department Range to practice, you can show up on second or third watch and they'll give you 100 rounds to put through the gun - EVERY YEAR! Or at least until the Federal money runs out - because you know there's no way the mayor would approve anything that might make us better shots.
- We're still shorthanded. Second City Sarge covers some of the old axes we ground up a while ago, but it's still a topic worth looking at as there has been no change in the situation. We're still short bodies, morale still blows, and the political establishment is slowly killing this job.
