Just reading the various comments sections, there are a bunch of rumors that need to be aired out and have their own posts. Some of these are really fun to see:
- Callback, 3-1-1, Alternate Response, or whatever name they are going by this year is going to be purged of long term medical cases (heart, kidney, pregnancy, etc) who will then be assigned by some unknown process to the District desks or Admin offices, thereby freeing up able bodied coppers for the street. We've heard this one before on an almost annual basis. Expect union problems for the Desk bid spots among other things.
- 008th District purge. After the recent incident, rumors abound of some changes by sometime Friday. This is about the softest of rumors and always seems to pop up after an "incident." But then we remember the Matthews incident in 019 and the demotion that followed. Who knows what could happen?
- 021 to close and 008 being split into two districts - one of which will be the new and improved 021. Of course, any change like this is at least 2 years away since they'll need to build a new station at some point.
- Sergeant results to be mailed out as soon as Friday or Tuesday. Again, a regular rumor but getting louder again. Who knows anything?
