it could possibly be a class of 100. They were budgeted to make 150 detectives for 2007 but have only promoted 50 in late Feb.Correct me if Iam wrong about promoting only 50 this year, just some info

If the Lt. test is on the up and up then why isn't there a posted list of the rank order of those that took the first and second part of the test. Because the city doesn't want anyone to know where they scored in relation to others, other than by word of mouth. ------------------------------------------!!!!!!Here's an idea, all the Sgt's that scored in the top say 150 make a photo copy of your letter, and send it to the Sgt's Union. Sgt's union collects all the letters and posts the rank order list from the letters sent in and posts it on thier website, and then we will see who's merit...............

You hear about how understaffed this department is with manpower in both the Bur of Patrol and BIS, but that last time they made a class of Dets. was the beginning of February. Approx 10 months ago. The rate of attrition is moving rapidly, especially with Dets. And What is with these small classes of 50??? 40 get the position by their right of doing well on the test and 10 get the almighty annoiting from "MERIT"
What ever happened to the classes of 100-150??? Oh that's right, the smaller classes are a more effective learning environment,, Give me a break.. All those classes are filler power point presentations.

Once again, lies are permeating the blog. The tact Lt. in 005 is NOT a merit Lt. love him/hate him, he's there, and he got there on his own, and was ASKED to come there and replace Lt. Lardass. Last time I checked, there are 24 other Districts and over 48 other tact & gang teams to go work on if being in 005 is giving you so much stress. Sometimes a change of scenery works wonders!
But don't continue to be a coward here and post lies anonymously.
Been too much of that here already.

When will this merit garbage stop,why do you think you will get quality people out of clout? I know it's not about quality,and merits not realy about merit. If that were so I wouldn't care who got picked and be happy for them.There are thoes that say "It doesn't matter how you get there, as long as you get there". well I think it does matter and the quality of people you get matters too, but it's not about quality is it.

yes they're working on the logistics for the next class (notifying guest speakers(agencies) submitting material reproductions, etc.). This is usually done two to three weeks out.

Yes, they (the supervisors from sgts to superintendant) are trying to make "detective" a paper shuffling job. This starts with sgts. and Lts. who, whether or not they have previously been dicks, never did learn the job.

I've seen sgts (peviously dicks) so scared to make a decesion they almost vomited on themselves. This comes from being all clout and no brains. One thing you can be sure of if they ever made a decesion you can bet it would be the wrong one.

Good luck to you wanna-be dicks get your request into your uncle-daddy asap.

The last time there was a ranking list was the 95 lt and sgt test. That is when Merit was initially started under that name. Since then, no numerical listing.

Yes it is true Detetive work is becoming a paper job. I sit there for several hours each day and sift through all the fucked up bullshit reports that come in from the street. I can't beleave what the Sgts. are signing these days.

The big differance is, I sit in a nice comfy arm chair in front of a computer in a clean office and do my paper with music playing in the backgound.

I don't have lump holleren in my face or sitting in the back seat stinking up the place while I do my paper, unlike you.

I am not tied to the zone, getting told where to go and what to do by a dispatcher who has no idea what Police work is all about.

When I need to get out of the Office I can take a cruse anywhere I want to go. I am not limited to a beat or a district or even the city. Many of the investigations take out of city the and sometimes out of the state.

I have no Sgt. or Lt. checking up on me all day and asking what I am donig and where I am at. The best part is if I do my job right, the only time I have to talk to a supervisor is to say hello in the morning and goodby at the end of the day.

You are right the Detectives job SUCKS, do yourself and all of us a favor and never take the test!

Wow almost forgot I need to take time due for tomorow, got some stuuf to do.

I doubt a class of a 100 would be made. They have been sticking to 50 for a number of years. As far as budgeted for 150. Last years rumor was 250. They took 80 off the list that year and looks like the same this year. The first class from this list was at the end of 2005. So this would be the fifth class .

ONCE AGAIN, YOU COME ON HERE TO DEFEND LT. W.INGRAM, AND YOU STATE THAT HE MADE IT ON HIS OWN. YOU STATED THIS BEFORE, IN ANOTHER POST, AND YOU SAID "HE" TOLD YOU HE MADE IT ON HIS OWN. WAY TO GO GUY - B/C HE TOLD YOU IT MUST BE TRUE.

THEN YOU CALL SOMEBODY A COWARD FOR POSTING W/O THEIR NAME, YET YOU DO THE SAME DAMN THING.

You must be a tac superhero. Usually only tac superheros say things so stupid.

The funny part is when you heros finally get upstairs, you realized just how overwhelmed you are and realize that one actually has to work on cases that you have zero chances of solving because there is no evidence or witnesses and you have to investigate because of the seriousness of the case i.e. big thefts with zero witnesses or burglaries.

You guys think the dic job is one in which you choose that one case you have to handle for the month and canvas the entire neighborhood until you get the big break.

You are smarter than everyone else and God Dang It, people like you.

Everybody knows that Marty Murphy abandoned ship from 005 some time ago. Police work was, simply, over his head. Sgt. Howard is still there, doing his job. Why would you sign your post with their names? That makes you an even bigger coward.

You are kidding right? big thefts? burglaries? this department doesn't give a rat's ass about property crime, when you have exhausted all leads, and barring the return of evidence, i.e. prints, you suspend the case and move on to the next one, and then you suspend that one as well. Move the X, remember?

Hey Einstien, who the fuck do you think is merit? Each and every black and Hispanic, save one M/1, was merit in my Sgts. class eight months ago. Out of fifteen merit the handful of whites were almost all southside Irish. Talk to any of the fifteen for thirty seconds and you quickly realize they could not have legitimately scored within the top two thousand. Non compis mentis.

You must work in violent.

My main point is you don't get one case to run with you get many; but maybe, you get just one and then advise the victim to go get a summons.

Yep you must be HGS.

Big deal, you get G jobs, they sit in a folder, suspended, until prints come back or a pinch is made by a copper, you then go back to the folder and see how many you can clear with the in-custody offender. It isn't rocket science, you make it seem like it is such a rough job and you are sooo overworked....

With the sub 30% REAL clearance rate on homicides, we'll lose most of the conventions and insurers willing to write policies in our town soon enough anyway.

30% IS PRETTY MUCH ABOUT AVERAGE.
